it seems to me that the merchants have awfully accurate guns. i would have to say even better than some of the destroyers i have encountered. i actually had a c3 damage my sub so badly that i had to return to port after sinking it. anyone else encounter this phenom???

aim for its guns. they blow up real fast.

Also you can start shooting way out of its range. yeah it will take mroe shells but it will never see you.

i have been taking out the guns, but they still inflict some heavy damage. i'll try more distance to see if that helps my hull!

really once merchants get guns its best ot just torpedo them and hope they sink. I hit F12 and checked out a Liberty ship. the thing was more armed than a freaking destroyer. Im not gonna do a shootout with somehting like that.
