My guess is that it's transporting cork or a load of mae West's...

That's a large Transport (KGN). When shot in half like this, the halves usually stay afloat. But you'll get the "Enemy Unit Destroyed" ("Feindliche Einheit zerstoert!") message immediatelty after the breakup, and you will get the renown credit. Just leave it be and move away - making sure not to hit the wreck, of course. I once got my boat sunk by hitting the wreck in an unsuccessful attempt to drive through the gap between the halves - doh! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

The flagship of the 'ACME balloon company', this is their 'field test' unit. As you can see, it works quite well http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif shhh, it's top secret http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Yeah, the part that stinks is that I didn't get credit didnt' get renown and not even a sunk icon on the map....

Even after putting another fish into half of the ship, it didn't sink...

It would be great if one of the mod-dudes could create a mod, whereby you are given partial credit for 'damaged', as the real kaluens were given

No renown credit and no sunk ship icon? The ship in the picture is clearly split in half! Either a glitch, or are you using the Tonnage War mod with its different, largely waterline-based damage model? (I never came across a KGN during my brief time trying Tonnage War before demoting myself back to GW - too hard for me.)

the only mod I have is seawolves expansion pack.

I have no idea what tonnage mod is.

Then it's most likely a glitch. I've played Sea Wolves for a while before I discovered the controversy about Sea Wolves here on this forum, and also the many alternative mods, and in Sea Wolves, on numerous occasions, I've never experienced the problem with no credit for the split KGN (and also not in RUB and GW).
Try shooting another KGN in half and see whether the problem repeats itself.

N.B. NYGM Tonnage War is one of the four super-mods, along with Real Uboat (RUB), The Grey Wolves (TGW/GW) and War Aces. Tonnage War is by far the hardest of these four, with an altered damage model that makes some ships almost unsinkable and some planes almost undestroyable unless you hit very small specific parts of the enemy units (for ships that means under the waterline - deck gun fire into the side above the water, the bridge or the deck cargo has no effect at all, despite the flames). On the other hand, Tonnage War significantly increases the vulnerability of your own boat when attacked by the enemy.
