Getting a bit impatient, after been eluded twice by the same convoy

Slight course change..Closing in!!

The buggers change course, so I bee-line for the next zigzag plot only to get this close http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif

I have a Fat torp so I send it off at slow speed.. 'Hours' go by while I dive to 100m while stationary. As I pass 100m, there's a loud explosion on the hydrophone http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif.

Sadly the damaged ship was able to keep up with the escorts, So I had to abandon the follow up action... Sigh! I wait again for the next convoy http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Yes yes those FAT torps.

Always ready to suprise you with their abilities http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

This one I did not use FAT capabilities, I sent it on a straight mission (set 1st leg above the 12Km max range). It was the only steam torp that I had loaded - the other 3 were electrics (5Km).

I estimated the convoy to be about 10-12km away as they were barely visible on the horizon. Set Fat speed to 30 knots, straight all the way (not enough 'juice' to go a-wandering). Place the cross hair on a shadow...LOS!. Waited for about a minute then set depth to 150m. Sat on the hydrophone, while recording with Fraps - Booom!
