So I've been on this really long patrol. Track and attack this convoy twice.
After the second attack The escorts seem to dissapear except for a BlackSwan (Know the sonar signature anywhere). Doodling around I pick up three very faint, and really sick, sounding engine noises. Must be damaged ships so off we go to investigate...

Well Well where did you get your license...

I once completed most of a patrol in an IX. I went to the US coast and back and didn't find any more then 2 ships or so. I don't remember how many, but I still had most of my torps. Almost all of them in fact.

My tonnage was low and I was running out of fuel in some vain search patters to find a target.

So I set course for Lorient and began my bitter trip home.

Just into the bay of Biscay I encountered a convoy heading around Spain for someplace south.

This convoy was small but it was guarded by three armed trawlers in triangle formation. It was night and the winds were at 15mps.

I snuck into this convoy and sank one of only two C2's, the largest ships in the convoy.

I then sunk the other.

Looking around I couldn't find the escorts.

Then there the lead escort was. As soon as I hit the first ship, he turned to attack and promptly began to flounder. Helpless, I sank the lead escort, locked back and sank the port escort. (Now that I know where to look for him.) But I still couldn't find the starboard escort. NP, I sank the whole convoy and had a few torps left.

I then did a quick search towards where I was when I hit the first C2 and low and behold there was the last escort floundering. A torp later and I was on my way home, very happy with the last minute boost to my otherwise useless patrol.
