You know how sometimes you start a patrol and think it's just going to be routine? Not with War Ace Campaign, http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Decision - Given the amount and torpedo type, for maximum damage / tonnage the best possible target believed to be the Aux Cruiser.

Nice patrol report danurve!
At least you had a short and efficient time at sea... GWX does not offer as many targets close to the Norwegian coast.
