I just encountered the following situation: I had 2 ASW TFs, consisting of 2 SCs each, on patrol a few hexes outside San Francisco. Their patrol was set by using the "Set patrol zone" option under the the "Set TF routing" arrow in the TF configuration screen. Checking the individual ships shows that all had their ASW ammo completely depleted. All that was left was ammo for the standard guns.
Under such circumstances I would expect an ASW TF to return to it´s home port for replenishment. Of what value they can be without any dedicated ASW ammo ??? However, all TFs stayed on their positions.
Is this WAD??? Michaelm, is it possible to change the code accordingly, so that ASW TFs will return to their ports when all dedicated ASW ammo (DCs, ammo for Moustrap, Hedgehog etc.) is depleted?
The game I´m playing is a stock scen00 as Allies, with the latest beta (x9) installed. Also, the inoffical data files upgrades are installed.
