I have noticed that you get more renown and medals for sinking merchant ship. I sank 1 cargo ,2 twalers, 2 destroyers .Bearly got any renown and only 1 medal for the crew.Why dont you get alot of credit for sinking military ships.They are harder and important to sink??????

Certain warships are worth more than others.

Merchants are your primary target. The destroyers are primarily there just to protect them and help keep the shipping lanes open. For one thing, they are carrying important cargo, and they are also usually much bigger than a typical destroyer- so they take more resources to build.

The typical destroyer was pumped out pretty quickly, and in the grand scheme of things, wasn't as "important" as a cargo ship bringing food and war supplies.

the u-boat war was a tonnage war, the idea being to drastically reduce the supply of war materiel to the UK. Therefore merchant ships were the main targets.

Actually, you do get more renown for sinking warships than you do for merchants. The problem is merchants are much easier to find and sink. I'll give you a partial list of some of the ships and their renown values:

C3 Cargo--240
C2 Cargo--190
T3 Tanker--340
T2 Tanker--320
Liberty Cargo--220
Coastal Merchant--60

V&W Destroyer--120
Somers Destroyer--140
Clemson Destroyer--120
Fiji Light Cruiser--430
Bogue Escort Carrier--560
King George V Battleship--1,500

As you can see, big warships are worth more renown, but big warships aren't exactly a common encounter. Small warships are easy to find, but aren't worth as much as big merchants. Tankers are worth more renown than cargo ships, not to mention usually being much easier to kill.
