After sinking a few merchant ships and making a quick run for the coast across from dover, I was chased by at least 2 armed trawlers and a destroyer. Report a contact list over the radio, and then a swam of stuka's arrived and caused some major chaos to the chasing boats. 2 boats were sunk but bits of stuka were falling out of the air all over the place. I love this game http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

You were able to radio a contact report when it wasn't a convoy?

I've only been able to radio convoys.

Im not sure if radio'ing contact and patrol report made the stukas turn up, but it was very helpful and ammusing to see friendly assistance in action.

You can radio any type of contact in. If the contact is an enemy and you are in range of a friendly air base, there is a chance that they will send out a strike on the contact/s. I forgot what the % chance was but if you mess around in your CFG you can find it, it also has certain modifiers too.

Thats awesome, the only time I ran into the luftwaffe was off the coast of Norway, when they took credit for a kill that was 99% mine, I had severly damaged a coastal merchant and out of nowhere a Stuka dopped a bomb on it (which got there just as my last round was inbound) and hit a fraction of a second earlier, I don't know if mine would have been the lethal one, but the dive bomber's one definitley was.

How do you radio in other contacts?

It only ever shows a contact report if I do it when I'm engaging a convoy.

Yeah - I keep trying to do this too, but whether it's for convoys or just ships it never really seems to do any good or even acknowledge that I've done it - regardless of which button I press to send a report (either contact or patrol/status), it looks like a regular status report in my radio log book, and if I ever do get a response it's the same old "keep up the good work" **** from BdU - we could really use some more attention to the radio traffic - as they say over in the IL-2 forums, the radio traffic in SH3 is way "undermodelled" http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
