View Full Version : Sending Contact reports

How do you send Contact reports when in the Campaign?

I see you can do it in the radio room and also get your radioman to send one.

But nothing seems to show in my outgoing messages to show one's been sent?

You don't see the report. However, it is out there somewhere. If you are close to a friendly airbase (near the Channel or north of Narvik) you might get some bomber support, which will steal your targets. IMO, avoid!

Yes if - if your close to a friendly base you might get air support. Other then that if you spot several ships - what turns out to be a convoy and send a report you might see at least one contact report sent from your boat with info. Not sure what triggers that some day I'll have to try and find a way to edit that. Anyhow sometime there after, you'll get a radio msg about a large convoy heading, most likey the one you shadowed. Not much more to it.

Nope! .....I don't send them!

All the Luftwaffe ever does is show up and bomb the juicy targets and cripples before you can get the credit for the tonnage.

You'll have to be in confirmed visual contact with more than two ships to send an accepted contact report. Your radio guy tells you "contact report sent" or similar.
Well it's a fast way to uncover the course of the convoy, because your radio operator notes the heading into the message booklet.

Ok thanx Guys

Ya, the friendly air support subject leaves a bad taste in my mouth, lots of juicy targets ripped from my very hands like candy stolen from the school bully. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

If you enjoy 'Tea and Biscuits'... send as many reports as you want.
Your biscuits will get a bit soggy in the sea water though... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

This might be a little off topic but it's funny relating to reports.

So I'm on my way back to port and I have two fish left over. Rough seas and high winds, yet I encounter a large cargo steamer. Sunk it of course, but before I submerged sent a contact report. Low and behold two friendly fighters show up, I was thinking, haha your to late suckers! As they turn one hits the other one and they explode, crashing into the sea. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

I just let my "Socko trained" AA gunners shoot them down! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

After all the tonnage I've had "stolen" by the Luftwaffe, the satisfaction derived more than makes up for the negative renown I receive!

I seem to recall having used this contact report in the vicinity of the Thames, before diving to periscope depth, when I played the game in stock version, and back then it appeared in the message board next to status reports, and one also received a confirmation of the received contact report, but this has vanished with GWX. I don't recall right now, if it was there with RuB or not.
Anyone still plays that, who can confirm? Or NYGM/UWAC users?
