Where should I go for the next patrol, in order to make it exciting and to give me a bit of background to write a report on? Caribbean is fine, but it takes a damn long time to get there, with no guarantee that the weather will not turn horrible. Northbound PQ convoys are a challenge I'm willing to take, but it might take like a month game time to actually find one. Anybody want to suggest a route that may prove to be good?

How about the Gibraltar convoys? Were they not the toughest convoys to attack due to the amount of escorts - a nice challenge for you?

go to south africa, or the area around Rio De Janeiro

For a real test, break into the med, then into the black sea. Then the return voyage

I agree with Goose_Green.
Gibraltar is fine but dangerous.
Last night I met two convoys one Eastbound
with Passenger Liner inside and second one Westbound with two Troops ships and a lot of T2/T3.

You can also try the US coast, NY harbor is a busy place http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

Hmm, I was indeed thinking of checking out New York and taking screens of the Statue and skyscrapers. But Gibraltar sounds like a challenge, so far I was unable to break into there even with a small VIIb. Maybe i'll go there on the enxt patrol. We will have a report of either:
a)A heroic death
b)Heroic escape.
And if returning would not be an option, there is always Toulon to go to.
