Default 688i SEAL ops Campaign Mission 1

Just purchased this on Steam, with SC, FC, and DW. $7.00 US. Couldn't pass that up.

For the life of me I cannot get the SEALs to deploy.

I'm at the designated launch point 22-02N 080-38W at 0500. the skies are still dark.
Speed 0kts, Depth 60 ft.
Conducted search with the scope, and ESM mast. Even checked for new tasking by raising the antenna. No contacts within visual range. The closest hostile is over 15k yds away.

Is there some other trick to it? Banging my head on the desk isn't helping.

Checked it many times. I'm right in the middle of the launch point a 0 kts. Everything else is as it should be. I saved it at that point and let it run to see if it would update before sunrise, but it didn't.

I'm sure there is something simple I'm missing, but I cannot suss it out.

I can't remember exactly how Sub Command deals with "quick launch" and things like that, but it takes a good five game minutes for the SEALs to launch that I remember from the single mission Sakhalin Strait.

In 688i H/K launching of SEAL's is automatic.

Oops, lol, the first mission of Sub Command as an akula deals with launching special forces, also, I believe. I saw you got SC in your OP and then just went for it lol. Disregard my last!

The only changeable aspect of the mission is time. I ran it again, getting to the launch point before 4AM and it worked perfectly.

You need to arrive at the drop off before 0400h
