I saw this thing today. Hydrophone picked up a couple warships moving fast. Thinking I spotted a task force, I moved in. Here is the first glimpse of it, seems like a very large one!

When it got closer, however... something wasn't quite right about this thing http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Sounds like something may be messed up in the files, spawning merchant vessels instead of warships? Unusual to see them inline like that.

Heck, even mor eunusual when almost every single convoy is listed as a task force moving at 7 knots http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif I didn't touch the files, but this never happened before http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

I've gotten merchant convoys listed as Task Forces too. All of them. No, I don't recall any messing around with the files, though I did set U-boat numbers. (Thought I knew what I was doing. Maybe not...)

Never seen a convoy in column though.

I cant say that I havent seen a convoy following in a line.

I ran into two small convoys each of which consisted of two ships. One was a T3 tanker and a C2 Cargoship, and the other was a C3 Caroship and a Small tanker. Both of which were following in a perfect line.

Ahh yes the mini-convoys. I've intercepted a few of them some even neutral escorted usually by a trawler. It kind of makes the target seletion a bit easier to make http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I remember something from the Midway doccy that and invasion force/Task force was futher to the south-west. AFAIK it only consisted of freighter/tankers/troopships and maybe a small escort. This is probably in line with invasion forces early in the Pacific war.

Sink the freighters and you'll have lots of survivors http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
