Default Convoy Hunting For Ships In The Same Row By Stoianm

Last updated 31st December 2014

Convoy Hunt For Ships In The Same Row - Tutorial Video's - With Real Navigation And 100% Realism In SH5 > Step By Step Instructions.

This ‘Tutorial’ by ‘Stoianm’ shows you how to attack ‘3 Targets in a ‘Row’ simultaneously.

‘My Tutorial’ can be used in conjunction with ‘Stoianm’s 4 video’s’ that make up his ‘Tutorial’ or as a standalone replacing ‘Stoianm’s Data’ with your own.

If you are using ‘Map Contacts’ then you will need to disregard parts of this tutorial but you will still need to know how to take the different bearings.

(Leave the ‘TAI Map’ ‘Minimised instead of ‘Closing’ it.
