Hunting Dido Class Light Cruisers
 
Greetings,
I am in about the middle of the SH5 campaign and operating in the cold waters North of Norway/Sweden. I have nearly completed my objectives and am running out of time. I cannot locate any Dido Class Light Cruisers (on escort duty) of which I must sink 5 before my time runs out. I have encountered several convoys escorted by a variety of surface combatants, but I cannot find any Didos ... where are those darn Didos?

i found my didos in a couple of places , best place is wait in the deep water channel going into murmansk where the channel is about 3 to 4 miles wide , sink any single ships , i found if i sunk about 3 single ships some with my deck gun then a convoy would appear ,WARNING the convoys and single ships can be coming into or out of murmansk .
I have in the arctic convoys sofar completed
PQ/QP convoys
Vital Supplies
Close Cover
And now just need two battleships in the Distant Cover , just found my carriers , and sunk them , but sub suffered damage and down to 6 torps 4 electric 2 steam.
Carriers where found in a small triangle on my map , if you draw 3 circles in the following way
1. center of first circle at 126.9 dia at loc 71N-6E
2. center of sec circle at 55.8 dia at loc 72N-7E
3. center of third circle at 166.4 dia on the cross of the close cover
It will leave a small triangle where the three circles converge , place your sub there , i found my carriers on may 16 1942

Hi .
Today i managed to find an sink my second battle ship , the first battle ship was an american battleship going into scapa flow caught them napping about 18 km sse of scapa flow main entrance , my second battleship was very elusive indeed , yesterday i found and sunk the duke of york , it was in scapa flow at anchore , did a save once in position to sink her , then fired four torps at 5 sec intervals , she sunk but tonnage bar failed to give credit , tried a replay from my saved position , but no battleship , very annouyed , i tried again by going back to my other saved game just as i left port , arrived at scapa flow on the 31 oct 1942 , duke of york was at anchore , once again i sneaked into scapa flow , and lined up , fingers crossed that this time it would count i let the torps go in the same pattern as day before , she once again sunk with 4 hits , this time tonnage bar credited the hit , campaign complete with all crosses filled in , just hanging around till start of next campaign .
the duke of york is the same class as the king george v battleship.
regards hans jenisch.:yeah:
