And then there's my second target. Torpedo away!

He dies too and I'm out of contacts so we exit the engagement to this... oops! But it does show that you can do other things than strictly following your set mission... #:-)

Back to the strat map where you can save your progress and see your campaign status so far. See that Soviet sub west of Iceland? He's my actual target.....  :-[

Looks interesting - but how come your target got so far away? I think I'm wondering how on earth you'd know what your target was meant to be and where you would find it.

It got so far away because I have no idea what I'm doing.  :P  :D

See those tiny blue plane symbols? Their our team's maritime search planes and they will make the enemy subs appear on the map as they fly their search patterns. So, because I wasn't moving fast enough when my target first appeared I started moving towards them. But them the search plane also moved away and the target vanished and a new target appeared closer to me so I went for it instead.

Like I said, I think the strat map needs a pause so you can think and plan you own search path before the clock starts running. I'll probably restart the campaign no that I know what to expect... I should also read the manual sections about campaigns and the strat map.... #:-)

So is the sub hunt mission still on or cancelled?

Looking for my next target I "spot" a noise maker so I head that way.



Now, since I've read the manual a bit more, I find out I was wrong about what that symbols was. It's not a noise maker, it's an active sonobouy! I should not have headed that way at all.  #:-)

Great pics Barth. You're taking me back to all the dumb mistakes I used to make in RSR.

Love it  O0

I enjoyed the developer's other stuff and wondered about this, but just reading through your AAR so far rekindled fond memories of RSR.

Can't wait to get back to the world so I can get my (post WW2) sub on with this game.  In the meantime, got SH 3 and 4 to fill the void.

Keep the AARs a-comin'!
