  1. Take a look at Dangerous Waters when you are ready for a more advanced sub sim. It has the features you desire; MP, individual crew stations and a bunch of other things you didn't know that you wanted yet. 688i Hunter-Killer is worthy of a look too. In my opinion, it's the superior sub vs sub MP platform.

  3. It's going to be years before the armatas will be ready for active service. They are also buying upgraded T-90s and 80s.
  4. "Now we don't want them shot at... not by the enemy at any rate."
  5. I guess it was someone else. I avoided the game for a long time because I took his opinion to heart.
  6. Sprint and drift is another viable search tactic. Subs of the Skipjack era used mainly high and medium freq sonar arrays which have detection ranges from 4000 to 10000 yards. 6000 yard sprints (flank speed for 6 mins) followed by all stop and drift to shallow using positive buoyancy would be a good starting point (Six minute rule: yard distance travel in 6 mins = speed x 200). Diesel subs are most dangerous only after they reached their patrol area. If you can catch them in transit to their patrol area, they should be snorkeling and making a lot of noise. Remember they have sonar that is crappier than yours.
  7. Use torps as bird dogs. Set them to the slowest speed, dog leg your shot and have them approach an area from a different bearing. This should get you the same results with less risk. Also consider using active sonar. It only gives them a bearing while you get their exact location.
  8. I recall you had the same opinion on Dangerous Waters. Is there a sub game that you actually liked?
  9. Could the burst charge be detonating and the shrapnel penetrates turret ring?
  10. Version 1.0.0


    Operating and maintenance instructions for the M47 Patton.
  11. It depends on how the game mechanics work. For example, is a shell able to ricochet 2 times? How does it handle the burst charge?
  12. Anyone interested in the M47 manual?
  13. For 75.2% of you out there, right click on desktop > nvidia control panel > help > uncheck "allow experience improvement program" Note it will turn itself back on during vid driver updates.
  14. Should we start addressing you as Marco Ramius now?
