one effective technique I found is to kill the AA first in the sub using rockets and cannons then finish it off the sub with bombs on susequent passes of course this is easier if you got a wingman to distract the AA first so it would be shooting away from you when you shoot at it.

Have you seen a submerged sub in this sim? If so, I would like to see a screenshot. This sounds really cool. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

Battleships use their main guns to destroy subs. The only other way I have seen them destroyed is by ramming with a nother submerged sub. I had to do that for a movie I made.

I have heard you can do it with a 1,000 pound bombs with no time delay. You have to hit it just right. Not sure how you do that with just a periscope sticking out of the water.

You do have to hit the periscope to sink it. Now that delayed bombs are fixed, they work too.

YA submerged there in co-op missions I made for my gameing clan. Theres a sub fireing at a carrier as it passes but so far the only way to sink it is to hit it with 2x500lb bombs.Yes it has to be direct hit on the scope to kill it! Needless to say it dam near impossable shot. Rockets do nothing to it, and 2x500lb bombs is the biggest we can get off the deck of a carrier moveing 30knts havent tryed a torpedos as we dont seam to have any carrier based aircraft to choose from except the beufighter that has them.......Any ideas guys?

NWBKUSA, have you tried the IL2T yet? It packs a torp & I think you can get it off the carrier. Lots of luck landing though. There is even a "Kate" skin on il2skins.com I play around with a bit. The A20 packs a torp as well.

We just all got the pacific fighters on its release and are playing it stand alone seperate from the IL2 series. I didnt know that IL2 skins and missions would work with P/F we figured it worked the other way round , just that we had so much new stuff with just P/F that we havent got around to expanding the game yet. I jumped right into mission building for the guys and im lookin for weapon discriptions for there uses as most of this is pretty new to us .........this being the first WW2 flight sim we have got into

there is a submerged sub in my 'action at midway' mission
watching it the other day... after my plane was shot down bombing a BB.... i saw the sub torp a jap DD then collide with it before it had sunk completely
made a mission to try to sink one... it needed a 1000kg... right on the nose.... the f4u can take 3 x 1000kg... but with unlimited ammo it still took many tries to get it!

NWBKUSA, you have to do PF as an addon to AEP to get the IL2T. PF as a stand alone doesn't have it. The recorded tracks (older ones) may not play on the combined install.
