Hey Everyone, For awhile now, whenever I am doing a surface attack or trying to avoid detection on the surface, I lower the profile of the U-boat by diving it down maybe 2 meters, so maybe 7 - 7 and a half meters under. This way I can still keep my watch men out, yet practically the conning tower is the only visible thing sticking out of the water if the sea is not perfectly calm. I always thought this was good at avoiding detection, at least in theory, but I have no idea about in the game.

So I guess I was wondering if anyone knows if this helps, or if the game even takes this into account? personally I have just been doing it out of habbit heh.

This is a good practice. It will reduce your radar signature and increase your dive speed when it becomes necessary.

And don't forget to drop your scope before setting up your low profile, other wise when radar comes into play, it'll light you up like a Christmas Tree http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif
