I know this is an old thread, but, wondering if anyone can give insight into better results, especially regarding torpedoes with this scenario?
I am starting to get back into CMANO after some time. I have run this 3-4 times, and it seems that my hit rate on tankers is less than 50%, while on Libyan subs it is 75% to 80%. I end up hitting the tankers with Harpoons and TASM and still only finishing off 2 or 3. I have tried from 8-10 miles, 5-8 miles, and under 4 miles to the tankers. I have also tried abeam, astern and ahead. Would it be typical to expect a fairly good hit percentage on subs and not on a lumbering tanker that takes no evasive maneuvers? It also seems that it is taking at least three hits in every case to sink a tanker, sometimes more, so I end up between misses and multiple hits expending all my stores but only getting minor victory at best.
I am also working through a technical game issue in the Tech Support forum, but, don't think this is part of that issue . . .
Thanks for any tips or insight.
