I am having trouble getting a passing grade on the convoy hunt exam...a large portion of my torpedos do not hit target even though the target is within 1000 meters, and I am approaching from the side (not a naval term I know...)
Can someone let me know what I am likely doing wrong? Any suggestions? Please help! I can't awit to graduate http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

IIRC the exams have auto TDC. What this means is if you "lock" a target, the weaps officer will do all the math and give you a solution that will hit exactly where you're aiming. As stated, the rest of the convoy follows the same course and speed so you can then unlock, aim at a ship you want to hit, fire, and wait for the show.

Try to get closer too. If you're only 400-500 meters away that increases your odds of a hit. But too close,under 300, and the torp might not arm in time.

ALternatively, just do some editing of the NavalAcademy text file in your cfg folder so it reads something like this.

I had the same problem myself. I had played that last convoy deal like 20 times until I read you have to open the **** torpedo doors. If you don't the torpedo will delay just enough to miss every time. I am not sure if that is the problem for you but it was for me.
