first - hello to all.
Question about "exam". I compeleted the convoy attack exam and sank all ships, but when i hit "return to base" it showed that I had not finished exam. I dont mind doing over, but am i doing something wrong?


The funny part
I immediately took out the C2 and a Coastal Merchant. A destoyer(or armed merchant, i was too panic to pay close attention http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif) was on me like stink on poop, pinging me and droppping DC's.

Funny part: While the ship was dropping DCs on me for a while, a British Armed Trawler appeared and gunned down the British ship was working me over. How nice of them!

I then kept my head down till they moved on, following from afar. In early eve, surfaced, right behind the trawler where he couldnt get his big gun on me.
I think I first took out his rudder/engine - he couldnt turn and was dead in water. Then took my time sinking the trawler and the rest of the ships.

On side note - I suck at evading DC's
any tips or links to tactical ideas?

Many Thanks.

I had the same experience - the corvette that started to fire at destroyer in my convoy attack exam http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

and about your question - maybe you were underwater when you ended the mission? no more ideas http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

thanks for replies - yes it was exam. completed it 2 more times , exited to base while surfaced both times. still not work - oh well , thats ok.

Wihelm - thanks for site! Those are some great tips that I put to use on my first career voyage last night. Sank handful of ships and came back in one peice!

PS: I did have a GOOF! i forgot about the 2 external torpedoes! was late and my mind was not clear so when i did figure it out i had them, i couldnt figure out how to get them inside my sub. I just now thinkiing that weapons officer could help. yes?
