I fired two torps against T3 and she only slowed a little bit. First time (due to lack of ammunition to deck gun)I used flak gun against large vessel. I had to shoot almost all ammunition to sunk her. After 350 shoots (manual)she ...

I sank a small merchant once with the twin automatic 37mm gun in 1944.. I didn't take too long at all

you guys are having better luck then me, took on a costal merchant last night, had only star shells for my desk gun, so I closed in to less then 1000m and starting firing at the water line, every shell hit, then I switched the flak gun ran it out of ammo but blew everything off the ship that would come off with the flak gun, so okay didnt think it would take much to sink her she was riding quite low in the water I went out to about 3k and turn around and went to flank for a ram, I just hit her almost dead center but at about a 45 dergree angle and I slowed down to about 8 knots after topping out at 16, she didnt go down but I almost did, flooded the front torp room, and started heading down, luckly I was in shallow waters about 30m, had my crew do damage control, but in the time it took me to get going again the ship was long gone.


edited forgot this was Oct of 1939 and I am running a type VIIB was heading back to base and had no torps left.

I know your pain. Back durin the unpatched days, I was able to sink a small merchant i already torpedoed by ramming it at 16 knots. I didn't sistain that much damage, maybe because i put engines on back emergency about 5 seconds before impact. And when I tried that in the newest patch, i got the same result as you http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Does Ramming really work? I've never rammed anything on purpose http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif
But I've never considered ramming as a viable tactical option to destroy targets.
