Once again I'm out of position and looking through the scope I'm probably 4000m-6000m out. Got 3 electrics in tubes 1-3 and a FAT1 in tube 4.

Set the Fat for a 5500m initial run. I've got the last convoy speed report at 9 knots. I'm about to fire the FAT when I notice something amiss. The funnel smoke just does not look like 9-11 knots, the sea is fairly smooth so wind cannot be that much. they must be slower than 9 knots and adjust the TDC target speed to 7 knots.

Losssss... eternity went by and then boom, Was i happy - the torp hit on the initial run.

Very nice!! I guess it becomes a whole new challenge when you set up your own shots...mabey I'll try manual targeting, my second time around. Well done! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Sweet. However, I have to say I'd have gone with the 9 knots and missed.

I'm something of a devotee of the sonar-only attack, which becomes available once you have active sonar. It's really nice to fire at a target you can't see at all. Sometimes I even get hits ...

My best was 9400 meters. The torpedo was a dud and didn't detonate... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

way to shoot! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif , excellent manual targeting. Have to say i've never really thought about using the funnel smoke as a way to estimate convoy speed.

I wonder if any of you fellows who launch torpedoes on sonar-only have ever sunk a hospital ship? That hits you with a heavy renown penalty of 10,000. Of course, if you don't have that mod you don't have to worry about it.

Very awsome attack!

...also gotta give it to the devs for giving us such high detail to allow an attack run based on the funnel smoke.

Since the only mod I have is the sensor mod, I've never had to worry about hitting verboten targets. I have however hit targets I wasn't aiming at.

Never sunk one yet. Came close once, in a convoy attack. I had picked out a liner, had torpedoes ready to go, tube doors opened. Took one last look at it and said to myself, "What are those green markings on the hull? Crosses? Scheisse, a hospital ship! I came just that close. Luckily there were alternate targets available.

Hospital ships are available in one of the mods and are also incorporated into the Improved U-boat mod. Check out the download page here: http://www.mpgtext.net/u-boot/

It's fortunate that you did'nt sink that hospital ship...I think you would have been paying for that mistake, for a long time, with that kind of penalty! Thanks for the download site http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
