Well, having the submariner itch once again, I am now back into the hunt myself. Just finished installing FOTRSU and back to active duty! Always at 100% realism, of course, but I admit I have to refresh my target interception skills.

This time, while on patrol to send all those Jappo merchant ships down to Davey Jones' locker I'm also on the hunt for that elusive live carrier or battleship kill during the campaign. Even the Yamato, if I am lucky! I'm like that tanker hunting the White Tiger in that 2012 Russian movie of the same name - it's a personal mission.

Setting up and interception courses for warships has always been my Achilles' heel due to the usual distance of contact reports, their sheer speed, and their zig-zagging course. Any tip you might have for these situations are most welcome. That being said, such situations are great to learn how to perform vector attack solutions and the John P. Cromwell method.

Rumor has it that RR has been seen on the Facebook side of thangs, and might even do the Discord, though I haven't been there when he has, if he does...
