Default Bdu Convoy course problem

I have installed WOS mod. I want to intercept an convoy received by radio from BDU. But in radio message i get ship course as geographic directions (N, NNE, NE etc) instead degree direction. How do i fix that problem ?

You don’t. Take a look at this video. You get a general direction because in real life a luftwaffe pilot would not be able to give you a direct degree. You have to figure it out. Hope this helps. I have other videos from SH3 that work for SH5.

In your game directory you have a documentation folder. You will find a .pdf called "Attack_Disk_Handbook". There is exemples of how to use it for different situations. And one of this exemple is exactly what you need.

Within 2 pages you will learn to find the exact Course you need to intercept the reported convoy, and you will even find at what time you should intercept the convoy !

Enjoy, this is my must-read book
