Have noticed on Campaigns, enemy ships appear Red on the map, as one proceeds to go nearer, nothing on the Hydrophone, or Scope. They just seem to dissappear. Would appreciate any help or comment on this.

How far way are you approaching from?
Keep in mind Hydrophones are only affective at a max of about 20km.

And the enemy ships that appear on the map move, sometimes at 9 knots. Where it showed up on the map is not where you'll ever find them in the ocean for real. You have to intercept them. Plot their course, see where they are headed and navigate to a point futhur down the line. You'll have to guess their speed and see how far down the line you want to cross it. Then go under and use the hydrophones.

I had a French coastal merchant disappear as I was using the deck gun the other day. I fired one shot from about 1000m, then it was gone. Must be the cloaking device those Frenchies use.
