View Full Version : Where are the Capital Ships?

03-31-2007, 03:57 AM
I've hunted many convoys by now, but i haven't encountered any capital ships... not even the "smaller" ones. It's mid '43, i have a IXD2... Any suggestion where to find them?

Occasionally you will recieve radio messages informing you of a task force's location, and it will be indicated in the map in a similar way to convoy sightings. Failing that the best way to get them is when they are at dock. Check Scapa Flow and Loch Ewe once every patrol they dont appear that often but you will sometimes get some fat targets.

Check out the bottom of the Hunting Grounds section in the community manual. Follow a link in my sig

Foehammer-1 I found the captial ship locations to be accurate, but I think the revenge moves from Scapa Flow to Loch Ewe. As on one occasion I caught it in Loch Ewe shortly after the dates on the list in that link.

Not complaining or anything just a heads up.

I didn't make up the section, just found it useful http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif If you have concrete proof of something that's wrong, don't be shy and edit it yourself

The community manual is a great resource.

Also as was mentioned you will get radio reports of 'task forces'.

I'm in late 1942 and I've seen about 3 of these. Nice moving slow... but I was a bit far off and was unable to intercept. I think they travel erratic... unlike merchants which travel pretty much straight line. One of these times I'm going to be close enough and get a glimpse of some big fatties. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
