ppl, how deep the torpedo should be set from target's known draft? Today I set the torps (with magnetic pistols) depth on 8.2 for C2 with 7.8 draft - 3 torpedoes exploded beneath it and it had a terrible different (or how it's called) on back but didn't sink

That is correct. Maybe you have
to look better in the recog book to look
for the fuel tank.

I play on max realism so there's no fuel tank indication in recognition book

thx for reply

You did correctly. Detph must range from 0.5 meters in calm seas to 1.5 or 2 meters in rought seas. I found that against C2 is better to shoot in such way that the angle between the front of the ship and the torpedo is something ranging from 30 to 45 degrees. One torpedo will do massive damage, and quite likely, will sink the ship.

Aim for the engine room below the smokestack.
9 out of 10 ships blow up nicely then at the cost of 1 fish. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

thx Jose.MaC
I continued setting depth the same way and everything's gone fine since that

On a C2, I set the depth for 6m and aim just in front of the smoke stack. Going for impact. On C3, set to 6.5m and the same aim point. 8 or 9 out of 10 go down in one fish. but thats just me. I hate the C2's....
