As this could sound like nonsense, it will be much more relevant according to many documentaries about convoy attacks. At the night, sub was nearly invisible even if it was emerged in the middle of convoy between the ships.

As convoy tried to be invisible from distance, they was totally dark.

When sub attacked, they tried to use spotlights, but mostly without any success as they had no idea from which point attack started.

Periscope was really invisible in such situation

Otto Kretschem's favorite attack was from inside the convoys and always was a success in sh5 if u try to go inside a convoy dd's will detect u and will ruin all......

Exactly, but as i wrote in bugs thread, i was very successful to hide inside of convoy.
So it's not as far away from what i would want :)

Just my periscope is very quick spotted by merchants.

That would be enough for me.

I think you guys watch to much documentaries...:)

It's well known fact what kind of attack was preferred by large majority of U-boat captains and that certainly wasn't convoy surface infiltration...

But no..In SH games we all want to be Kretschmers an no one want to shoot salvos into large convoys...:D.

Anyway, I can confirm that, at least with TWoS, surface convoy infiltration is perfectly possible IF you know how, but I wont tell you, that would be a "spoiler"...:)

Once firework starts you cant stay on the surface for long though because most of the ships are equipped with search lights...

I don't want to be silent Otto, just want my fist size periscope to not to be visible from 500m in dark night, you have to agree, it's nonsense ;-)

i never infiltrate inside a convoy i always used multiple targeting solution to hit 2 - 3 ships at the same time :D from outside a convoy :D

And it is not visible...Maybe escorts have triangulated your position, who knows...What about search lights? Maybe they hear noise of your engines? It can be anything...

Have you saw this tip?

- If you enable "Show highlighted sensor region" TAI map options with OFEV, you will be able to observe how AI actually sees and hears you depending of your speed, depth, profile, weather, time of day ect...Very useful for "Submarine school" training...

Yeah that's nice debug, but i don't want to spoil my experience right now as I'm having blast with this convoy :)

It's just, when i attacked, i was stationary since approach before convoy. Then i was picking another victim and they spotted my periscope, i found it just by reaction of escort which was closest and about 3km+

If you say it's invisible, ok, maybe something else, will see next time :salute:

Bosun for better food, I guess you mean the cook. When I served on a sub the cook was definitely the most popular guy. The better his food, the better the crew :03:

Yeah the bosun probably provides you with a bottle of beer now and then, no wonder Olaf is pissed at him.

Seriously...the best morale booster in SH5, order a special meal from a cook with promotion points.
