Default Wolfpacks with The Wolves of Steel


I have question about the Wolfpacks in TWoS mod (latest version, no problems so far - great mod). I'm at Nov. 1940 and found a convoy, made a contact report and the BdU replied to keep contact with the convoy. After a few contact reports later, a friendly U boat replied that it's in position and I should keep up with my bearing signals. But I didn't know how to do that, is that even a feature of the mod or should I just continue to send contact reports?

A few moments later that friendly submarine with in sight, but didn't attack, it just made some circles. Then I've decided to attack the convoy and I've sunk a few ships.

But here is my question:

Why wasn't the friendly U boat attacking? Have I done something incorrectly?

Thanks for any advice!

Hey Hari,
AI uboat probably haven't spotted your contact .Yes, AI boats are rather dumb but they can be really useful for drawing off escorts from your tail giving you
precious escape window...

Default LATE 1942 early 43

Hey guys!

So I am damn straight in love with this game with TWOS installed but as I progress into late 1942 I am finding it very hard to get away safely from these damn escorts they just don't miss any more! and with larger convoys, they come ten at a time bombarding you with depth charges until they hit something Any advice? Maybe if I could find a Wolfpack to help me?
