View Full Version : Warship spotted!!

Hi: I don't know if this is normal or not but I was just curious about something....I've just completed my 23rd patrol and every single "Warship" that I have come across has either been a destroyer or torpedo boat! my question is??....where are all the cruisers,battleships and dare I say... aircraft carriers in this game?? surely the british navy had more than a fleet of destroyers available!!. I just find it difficult to fathom (excuse the pun) that after 23 patrols, I haven't encountered at least one of these capitol ships!!!I find this a bit disappointing http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

It should be quite rare. I've come near of a group of them in my 8th patrol, but never again listened anything bigger than a destroyer.

You can get report abot those groups near the Orcheys.

I'm in the middle of trying to attack or run away from three 'Rodneys'

I've been playing since the summer of 05 and have only come across one carrier and these are my first battleships to date.

I'm also playing unmodded. I'm sure certain mods will increase the warship play.

I was run over by a task force containing two Nelson BB's. I sank one of them.

It happens but not that often.

In my total SH3 experince I sank 2 battleships. One was the Nelson I just mentioned, the other was a Revenge in scapa during early october 39.

I have seen a Fiji cruser twice. The first time it was my first taskforce and I got scared off by all the destroyers and didn't even try. The second time I wasn't able to cath the task force.

I'm using the IuB mod and every convoy I run into has a Fiji cruiser in the middle of it, along with the escorts. Another Task Force I ran into, had an Illustrious carrier, a Fiji, Dido, and Southhampton cruisers alongside, and 6 other escorts. Perhaps the mods increase the likelyhood, and if so, try one out.

I actually did encounter and sink (two torpedos into the bow) a "black swan frigate" but it just looked like a large destroyer! it was escorted by a c class destroyer.I was promptly depth charged but managed to creep away. still...it's a cool sounding name for a ship! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
