.. and get back to the original idea - to see if the front escort is still there..

Then I get a convoy siting from BDU. It's changed course (SE) so beam eastwards. Then a Ship report somewhere behind the convoy on same course. Must be a damaged ship .. continue.

Arrive on time and dive to pScope. Sonar gets a good sound signature. Bingo! Convoy... (phew what a run around) settle down with torp settings, AOB.. etc.
SO: 'Warship on 300'.. OK the front escort must still be there...Damm
Wait a while and do a sonar sweep... hmm not much here.. too small for a convoy. TimeX...
Scope up.. 2x Warships.. Huh!http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif ..wait a while.. scope up.
Well well well.. who have we here?? 2 of my old friends from the first pic above. Should I (waste torpedos), shouldn't I (sensible)...
"Scope down, set electric torps 1& 2.. Depth 2m, Speed max, Detonator impact, AOB=90, Scope bearing=0, Open tube door# 1"
'SO Track front destroyer"

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v297/vanjast/th_Revenge.jpg (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v297/vanjast/?action=view&current=Revenge.flv)And here it is ... A 3min movie of live action. Audio is a bit distorted in a few places (haven't set PC sound levels).

Note: This is the first time I'm using Photobucket to host a movie, so I have no idea how it works. Will check this out.

Edt: Hmm I don't like the look of this. It's converted my film to a flash player rubbish. If you have this and it runs = OK. I want a straight link, no extra garbage http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

Can you tell me if that Pbucket link works OK or are you (like me) peeved with indirect links like this maybe.
As soon as I get my Web up and running, I'll plonk it on a direct link http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Frauleun Freddie...it works fine, a little small so your log is hard to read. good aiming buddy. I always get too nervous that the destroyers will change course, etc. I take it you are using automatic targeting?

Hmmm, electric torpedoes with MAX speed setting...how come BdU doesn't offer those to me?? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/354.gif

Hell No http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif I'd never dream of that.. Actually this time it was all manual (@100%). I didn't use the 'lock' feature here. I was worried that the second torp might miss - nearly did http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif
