Has anyone found these yet? I'm very interested in making these more realistic for RFB as the mod is now focusing on making tonnage harder to get.

I got no idea where these stats are - but HUZZAH for making shipping harder to find. I racked up over 200k in one patrol (granted I use the double strength torp mod) by only choosing major combatants or the largest of merchies. By the time I got back to port - I didnt even have a roll of toilet paper left to throw at the empire of the rising sun!

*****Side note - Is that why the admiral tossed my medal of honor at me from the dock????*****

On the flip side - my renown went up about 10k!

While I did get a Medal of Honor - it didnt tell me it was from Congress. A different medal perhaps?

Oh well - now to go get a shower - I feel like I need one just from typing that!
Good Hunting!

Yes and no. If I cant get in on a convoy I will use manual TDC. Thats rare though. Most of the time I use the point and shoot method from extreme minimum range. You lead a ship at 400 yards away by 8 - 10 degrees and fire. At high torp speed - based on deflection angle - and you'll hit. You just have to adjust for the AOB. From that close - its actually a really easy shot. The hard part of those attacks is getting in the right spot without being detected. The upside is that you can use both fore and aft shots very fast if you can position yourself between 2 columns.

Its a personal choice - my attack style is to knife fight, whether using torps or the deck gun. There are some that play the game just because they like doing all the math, some that like to just lock the target and yell "shoot" - and then the few like me that take a middle ground.

Remember - at lower "realism" levels you dont get full credit in renown for the sinkings. Had I been running low "realism", renown would have probably been somwhere around 3-5k instead.

Good Hunting!

I am not boasting here so please don't think that I am. I am simply adding a comment.

I am playing the game with very low realism settings (I want to have fun sinking ships, not have a coronary during each mission) and received four CMOH in my first career!

I would suggest therefore that medals awarded are also tied in to realism settings and lightweights like me will get a load of medals at the end of every mission, whereas hardcore players will get awards based on realistic wartime settings. Mind you, the US military have always seemed to be very medal happy anyway, not like here in the UK where you pretty much have to be sent home in an A4 envelope, after selflessly saving a dozen of your comrades in arms, to get the highest of awards.

Hmm medal happy hey look here http://www.army.mil/cmh-pg/moh1.htm then tell me they JUST give them away. Maybe you need to not let your alligator mouth overload your canary A$$.

And it is NOT the CMOH it is the Medal of Honor. It is awarded by the President in the name of Congress.

It's arguable both ways, and both are considered acceptable.

Sure, have a look at this then http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victoria_Cross.

I wasn't knocking the US military, just stating the obvious fact that more medals are available in the US. Simply look at the chest of any US general compared to your average UK general and I'm sure that you will see why I have reached this conclusion. Also, look in your "CareerTrack UPC" and it clearly says CMOH.

When Andy McNab left the SAS after serving at Hereford for 9 yrs he was the highest decorated serving soldier with only a DCM (distinguished conduct medal) and a MM (military medal) to his name. I rest my case.

Oh, and by the way, it's ARSE not ASS if you wouldn't mind

Fair enough arse it is. Also alot of the Generals running around now days where lieutenants in veitnam so they also have the veitnam conflit, american defence ribbons. And any other little ribbon that was awarded for combat operations they were involved in. So alot of the ribbons they are sporting arent award ribbons but campiagn ribbons.

Heres a list of submariners that won the MOH so you guys can see what they did to winn the Medal of Honor. http://www.valoratsea.com/MoH.htm
