i've only been very luckya, and comes traight across across a task force, took out an illustrious, only cap ship i have ever seen in the high seas. If you want some action then i agree. The straights will quench that thirst http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

The Improved Convoys mod adds a few realistic task forces, including hunter-killer groups of 4 or more DDs. There is usually one of these (sometimes accompanied by a Bogue Escort Carrier) in the Bay of Biscay. The mod also adds cruisers, escort carriers, or aux. cruisers to convoys that had them. Not quite a task force, but nice to encounter. Some of the convoys are really "improved" . . . 20+ big ships with 7 escorts. Taking out the escorts and surfacing to have a deck gun turkey shoot is not an option http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

you should be able to see some in the Med, I would always see 1 or 2 running sometimes from Egypt and Malta or Malta and Gibralter

I use the map that comes with the game that identifies active convoy routes through each year of the war. If you don't have this map its in the documentation directory in the installation folder on your drive. I also run IUB102 which when in chart mode you can zoom all the way out and shows the convoy routes so you can put yourself in the center of one that's active and you will have no problem finding all the action you want.
