I have been playing this sim since it first came out and I am finally trying my luck at a Med. tour. I have been on 2 patrols there so far and all I have ever come across were lone coastal merchants. All I seem to do is sit at the choke points or sail up and down the known convoy routes until I have only enough fuel to make it home. Are there any convoys out there or is it all lone ships floating around in the Med? Maybe I am just hanging around in the wrong spots? need help. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

I never encountered convoys but I did run into some task forces.

However, I've pretty much had my surfeit of task forces in the North Atlantic of late.

I've seen a couple convoys (including a pretty large one) there. All were found right by Gibraltar. i was crashdiving to avoid the aerial bombing, and my sonarman picked up the contacts

Just finished a patrol January 1942 where I went to Tobruk and sank...

1-Landing Ship Tank
1-Troop Transport
2-T2 Tankers
1-C3 Cargo
2-V&W Detroyers

They were all stationary right outside of port.
I'm using IUB mod and SH3 Commander.
