Default Reinforce Alert 1.50 Question

I have a question for those playing this mod in 2021.

What distance can be considered "safe" for surface contact and submarines if I need to avoid detection entirely? Like, within what range is it pretty much guaranteed to be detected no matter what you do?

For ships without sonars you can even cavitate few meters under their keel undetected.

I might as well add my 1.50 question here:

How do you get the best value out of the Towed Arrays on the 688 Flt1?

I was trying to track a Foxtrot, on the same layer - the Hull and Bow Sonars heard him before the towed - almost like it's not working...

The towed (spooled all the way out) picked up his first frequency at 3 NM (6,000 yds) but won't assign a tracker (still madly pressing the button!)

I need to do more testing, but to me this seems strange....

It is weird
Usually 688's TA can pickup an old generation diesel electric submarine's Narrow band signal >15nm

what's the length of the TA and what's the speed of 688i?

I would guess the speed is too low so the TA dipped below the layer

another explanation is TA is following your submarine's maneuver , it is a curve shape and not straight behind your sub. in that case it will not be able to locate the contact at the same direction from the hull / bow sonar

Maximal deployed lenght - maximal high sensitivity.
