In the Damn The Torpedoes mission, USS Pharris starts off as detected and identified by the Soviets. They are also able to accurately track the Pharris (including precise heading & speed) without any of their ships or aircraft in detection range. Pharris was placed into passive emissions only at the beginning of the mission.

Is this intended? Is the best way to beat the mission simply to let Pharris sink as soon as possible so that the dreaded Backfire strikes never get off the ground?

On a side note, why is zip not allowed as an attachment in this subforum?

Edit: Pharris is set to auto-detectable by default!

I suspect that there may be one of two things going on here since USS Pharris is indeed set to "Auto detect ON".

1. This is intentional and is an aid for the Soviet AI to facilitate detecting and attacking the NATO force through Pharris;

or

2. This is an error in the scenario.

The fix (if you think it's broken) is easy enough but since I never actually play scenarios using the editor, I never caught this. CMANO scenario designers have many tools to try and achieve desired results and sometimes the sausage-making analogy is apt: don't examine the process, just enjoy the result.

I think this is a nod to Tom Clancy's "Red Storm Rising". One of the main characters in the novel is the captain of USS Pharris, which is torpedoed and severely damaged early in the story.
