Convoy Discussion

Convoy Discussion

Just wanted to make a thread regarding what your expectations are when you see a convoy. I am getting better, but still don’t have the hang of it. So, right now I’m in a Type VIIB and let’s say I encounter a convoy of 10-12 ships. I look for the biggest and juiciest target and fire tubes 1 and 2. I will then look for smaller targets and fire tube 3 to one, and 4 on the other. If I get REAL lucky and something is behind me, tube 5 will be fired. Expectations on this are usually 1 to 2 ships. Destroyers will then keep me at bay for quite a while, so any additional shots are not happening. The convoy will be long gone before I can put my head up again, so no more attacks.

So how’s your luck given this scenario?
