View Full Version : How long to wait for Bombers?

I came across a small polish merchant and figured I would let the German Air Farce take it out It was about 100 km east of Hartlepool I guess. I made the report and waited for an hour, nothing showed up. So I killed it. How long is a good time to wait?

You can not report a single ship.

Your crew man will say "message sent" but it isn't.

Kind of like if you raise the snorkle before you have it, they will say "aye sir" but then not do it.

As a general rule I no longer use my crew to send a message. I go to the radio message screen ('m' button) and do it manually. If you don't get a message log entery, it isn't sent.

Is it profitable for Your career or just part of gameplay ?
(I've never sent any reports of ships)

Its not good for anything at all as far as I can tell.

If the luftwafe can attack the convoy they might, if they can't they will not. If they do attack, that just means fewer targets for me.

Do they ever attack the escorts? Does anyone know?

LoL @ the Luftwaffe....

10% chance they will turn up

5% chance they will hit anything

1% chance they wont get shot to bits by the escorts...

I think that sums it up.....
