ok as im sailing round north of scotland...

our of the blue there is a ' WERE TAKING DAMAGE' rudder dmaaged, this damaged, that damaged, and if i quick free look...theres a huge british destroyer ramming me... and then it disspeares...like a ghost....lots and havy fog ALWAYS round north scotland.. and 2 mins later it comes round for another ram..and disspears so quick i cannot target it...

how come my sonar never picks up on this ship?

Well, it depends if you were surfaced or not. Hydrophones don't work on the surface and even submerged you have a blind spot behiend you with the motors running.

I find it's usually a radar assisted ramming attempt, sometimes it happens and they miss and go right past you.
Could be an accident too i suppose.

Within 200k of the coastline up there, only surface for long enought to recharge batteries, otherwise steer well clear

OR! (sry I have to make a joke) OR maybe did you ever sink a the same type of ship? Maybe its coming back for revenge! OR! the game hates you very much. other than that, I got nothing, that'd scare the **** outta me, heavy fog and a ship hitting me outta no where. In reality though, I have no idea.

honeslty it happend without TC too...i was admiring the scenery..well what scenery there was.

High Waves
High wind

i was just sailing through, and it was all quiet like in a movie...all of a sudden a HUGE screech, and this ship just rammed me and everything was flashing red...my engine was messed up....as soon as i got back on watchdeck... ( 5 sec later ) the ships backend was like 3 Metres away and then 1 sec later it disspeared...2 mins after repairing it appeared again behind me and rammed me...and disspeared in the fog again...so i crash dived and gave up...it was like a Ghost ship

Absolutely, when its heavy rain and fog and not even close to the shore, I have had enemy war ships just engage me and you see nothing then the destroyer comes by and dissappears then appears again. seems like in that weather, it triggers something.

What year are you in ? If your in 1943 + then they found you via radar. Otherwise its one of those days http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif I don't underestimate their radar now. I was in 15 metre waves with medium fog, my conning tower was almost always under the waves. I was found by a couple of Sunderlands with radar http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif and they managed to get a bomb right on top of me in my crash dive http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif
