Ok Just Ran A Simple Fuel Test!

Ran a simple fuel test on a Gar, 2/3 speed and for 1% of my fuel that got me about 200m (i put m for I don't know what the rule marks out in?) I ran a ruled line out and sailed along it. Standard speed got me about 100m for 1%.

So in a Gar 2/3 speed should get you round about 20,000m Standard 10,000. As my mission from PH is to Japan as the crow flies from PH (or the ruler line does) its about a 12,000m round trip. As you can see by the figures you would have to take care of you speed in CT.

according to the Readme resupply ships will be added in a patch, but you can use forward bases. But I couldn't see any mention of if you do go to a forward base to refuel if as in SH3 that scrubs your mission you set out on..

anyone tired the refuel at a FB?

Bug ? move to 1/3 Slow is called out , move to 2/3 and ahead 1/3 is called out.

You can/should refuel at midway

And no, when entering a harbor and choose refit, your mission isn't over.

yea when manila was captured i used a base in indonesia to refit and refuel on a mission...if it isnt your home port you won't be allowed to dock to finish the mission unless your homeport is gone ie like manila...but if u are from say pearl and try to finish your mission at freemantle i think it is you wont the end patrol button is grayed out....

you mean 200 miles (mi) and not 200 metres (m) right?

If Pearl Harber were 12,000 meters from Japan, the war would have been very different.

Yeah, it would have had a name like "Pearlo Jima."

Yep! .....Jimmie Doolittle's raid would have been a lot less remarkable! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif
