Ha, I just went on supply mission, then got orders to patrol luzon straits and sunk a 1800 ton ship. I then got orders to patrol china sea and got a destroyer. What did I get when I got back home? The silver star for under a 3000 ton patrol and landing supplies.

I guess I could write it off as being December 1941 and the brass was eager to reward any success they could find and that I'm playing at 100%. What difficulty are you playing on? If it's not 100, you won't get full renown credit for accomplishing goals and sinkings.

The real deal is given for performance that is above and beyond the call of duty at the risk of one's life. It's the highest military award there is and it is a big deal to get it and a rare occurence. Most guys who get it - don't - because they're dead. Their families get it.

How that would be simulated in game terms is anyone's guess.

However they set it up you should only be able to win it maybe once in 10 careers IMO. That way if you did win it in the game you'd know you actually did something that in games term is rarely accomplished.

I would imagine its an award that you only see, right as your career game comes to a glorious and fatal conclusion.

I think in the game it generally requires an extrondanairy feat, such as sinking a fleet carrier or a Yamota battleship, and even at that, it is much easier to win than it would have been in real life. It would be very hard to simulate an action in a sub sim worthy of a Medal of Honor, since this was awarded for extreme bravery and self-sacrifice. As said abouve, the majority of those who have won it (including submariners) did not survive the action for which the medal was awarded

Actually, I got the CMOH last night. I was going "What the F*CK did I do to earn that????"

Was only my second patrol, to East China Sea, and scored my 1st kills on that patrol. Total kills:

7 merchants
1 warship (DD)
Tonnage: 36,599

Only completed 1 of 2 mission requirements:

1) Deploy to East China Sea (Complete)
2) Engage and destroy enemy merchant shipping (Incomplete)

Naturally I was suprised to get the CMOH, a Bronze Star might have been more in order! (if even that much...)

Who knows, it must be totally random and I just got lucky and hit the jackpot???

I have received it twice so far. Both times I have sunk around 70,000 tons. It could be that amount of tonnage or perhaps a major combatant. I can't tell. I have a patrol in which I sank 102,000 tons, and I was awarded the Navy Cross. In that case they were all merchants except for a pesky DD. Go figure.

I sank two fleet carriers (Shokaku, Hiryu) and got the CMoH.

During my first career I got 3 MOH (in 8 patrols).

the tonnage for each one was 61,000 - 53,000 - 32,000.

Each I time I was completing 3-5 objectives.

I also got 2 Navy Crosses for 55,000 and 84,000.

I guess the medals are awarded according to different criteria, such as:
- tonnage
- no. of ships sunk
- no. of objectives completed
- patrol renown
- patrol rating

With a few people we are tryng to figure right the exact award criteria in order to mod them and make them more realistic but so far we haven't been lucky in our research of the game files.

According to the book "Wolfpack: The american submarine strategy that helped defeat Japan", the requirements/standards established in 44 by the US Navy for medals are:

Bronze Star: 2 ships sunk in a patrol

Silver Star: 3 ships sunk in a patrol ori a DD ori larger combatant vessel, or a special mission worthy of this award

Navy Cross: 4 ships sunk in a patrol or a BB, CV or CA or a highly dangerous mission

For all of these 2 ships damaged will be considered as one sunk.

Of course, the requirements in the game are actually higher, but on the other hand so is the tonnage you guys are racking in comparision to your real life counterparts.

Elanaiba,

Is possible to know where are the requirements for each decoration?

Looking at UPCdata files I wasn't able to find the criteria for each award.

Thanks for any info you might be able to share.
