    So I ecaped that 8 hour thingy...


    .. and get back to the original idea - to see if the front escort is still there..


    My crew are more relaxed now ..


    Then I get a convoy siting from BDU. It's changed course (SE) so beam eastwards. Then a Ship report somewhere behind the convoy on same course. Must be a damaged ship .. continue.

    Arrive on time and dive to pScope. Sonar gets a good sound signature. Bingo! Convoy... (phew what a run around) settle down with torp settings, AOB.. etc.
    SO: 'Warship on 300'.. OK the front escort must still be there...Damm
    Wait a while and do a sonar sweep... hmm not much here.. too small for a convoy. TimeX...
    Scope up.. 2x Warships.. Huh! ..wait a while.. scope up.
    Well well well.. who have we here?? 2 of my old friends from the first pic above. Should I (waste torpedos), shouldn't I (sensible)...
    "Scope down, set electric torps 1& 2.. Depth 2m, Speed max, Detonator impact, AOB=90, Scope bearing=0, Open tube door# 1"
    'SO Track front destroyer"

    And here it is ... A 3min movie of live action. Audio is a bit distorted in a few places (haven't set PC sound levels).

    Note: This is the first time I'm using Photobucket to host a movie, so I have no idea how it works. Will check this out.


    Edt: Hmm I don't like the look of this. It's converted my film to a flash player rubbish. If you have this and it runs = OK. I want a straight link, no extra garbage

    Can you tell me if that Pbucket link works OK or are you (like me) peeved with indirect links like this maybe.
    As soon as I get my Web up and running, I'll plonk it on a direct link

    Frauleun Freddie...it works fine, a little small so your log is hard to read. good aiming buddy. I always get too nervous that the destroyers will change course, etc. I take it you are using automatic targeting?

    Hmmm, electric torpedoes with MAX speed setting...how come BdU doesn't offer those to me??

    Hell No I'd never dream of that.. Actually this time it was all manual (@100%). I didn't use the 'lock' feature here. I was worried that the second torp might miss - nearly did
