I've looked over the Total Germany campaign files and almost all of the "Groups" which are the named lists that the generated convoys are based on; NONE of the ships are defined to have any internal/external cargo. They are defined as cargo=NONE.

Now I'm not sure if somehow the game assigns them random cargos. I haven't got very far in campaign playing but haven't seen any ship w/ external cargo yet. Anybody?

So this could mean they travel with ballast and that's why they're hard to sink..
