im trying out the bismark mission where i have to sink a boat. i landed a torp on a boat but didnt sink it. i notice that afterwards when the boats head off i cant gain ground on them even at full speed.

ive noticed this on normal career mode. sometimes when the boats speed off i can spend ages tailing them but never gain ground on them. what am i supposed to do to catch em?

Different boats have different weakspots hitting a boat with one torpedo and sinking it is exellent shooting. Well depending on your U-boat the speed submerged is somewhere between 5-8kts Except the XXI 17kts and surface speed somewhere around 17-19kts. Battleships/other warships do a whole lot more so they will run away from you easiy. Also running submerged your batteries run out with a formula faster you go the faster they go. Hope this helps.

Pretty much...you can always shoot one torpedo at then that leaves bubbles or surface so they spot you and turn back to hunt you down...when they turn their guns at you remember to dive fast http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

For great info head here Community Manual (http://www.communitymanuals.com/shiii/index.php?title=Main_Page) I also left this link to you torpedo manual targetting question.
