    I don't know if this has ever been mentioned before, if it has i never saw it.

    It's just been bugging me.
    Is it me or are the the attack/observation
    periscopes the wrong way round on the conning tower?
    The observation scope in the command room is behiend the conning tower, but on deck it comes up at the front of the tower.
    Tell me i'm not daft someone........

    Also something different that may as well go here. I'm using the latest IUB mod without any other big mods except SH3 commander.
    Thimg is, i have now seen 2 different convoys with destroyers in them.
    I don't mean escorting, i mean as part of the convoy. They are in the middle and take no offensive action. When the torpedos start hitting they simply start to zig zag with the merchants.

    Anyone else see that happen?

    I've seen warships in with the convoys but always cruisers, aux. cruisers and escort carriers, never DDs.

    Yes, usually it's an Auxillary Cruiser at the back of the convoy (last column and middle), but I have managed to spy the odd Fiji Cruiser that seems to think it's some Merchant - always the first to be attacked mainly for the tonnage.

    I'm running IUB 1.03 with SH3 Commander too, if memory serves me right the Auxillary Cruiser was lined up in the same way with the previous version of IUB too!

    I also noted that in the Type II and possibly the Type VII the observation scope was in the wrong end of the boat. If mounted there, it would have come out aft of the conning tower instead of in the forward section of the conning tower. Just a minor annoyance.
