Running through the AAR on a scenario I am trying to perfect... I came across the following. I am wondering how this submarine sank with a weapon damage of 0...was it somehow related to critical hits? Has anyone seen anything like this bfore?

Also note in several of these that these weapons re-attack again and again, despite being decoyed away several times...eventually the odds are that they will ALWAYS win against the sub- in fact I have never yet played through a scenario in which I found and localized a submarine to attack it, and it survived...finding it IS a challenge often... but should there perhaps be a limit s to how often a weapon can re-attack?

Well the 0-damage impact is followed by blast damage, which means that the torpedo failed to penetrate but the external detonation (right beside the hull) was enough to fatally damage the submarine.

I'm more alarmed by the "All weapon seekers were spoofed - weapon missed target" message followed right afterwards by a weapon impact. Do you happen to have a pre-impact save of the engagement? Thanks.

I managed to create a scenario with the torpedo immediately reattacking every tick and attached it. It seems highly sensitive to the speeds and angles of the attack.

It appears as though the torpedo attacked a fourth time after the last spoof, but with no decoy attempts to stop it. 11:37:32 on the clock. That does not seem alarming to me....

What I found weird is that there is only one second delay between each spoofing and the following attack attempt.

Shouldn't a spoofed torpedo have to overtake the target, start a looping pattern, reacquire the target, and then close again against it, before the next lot of endgame dice rolling starts?

All that sounds like it would take much more than a second to do.

Was time compression on?
Sometimes actions can be taken in sequence, but the last time update recorded can be at the start of the time compression.

D... thank you. No, I did not save prior to this on this run through, but have the same submarine in another save of the same scenario...same units...and that one is having a lot of strange things as well...HVPs flying backwards after their target destroyed..."Spy" unit does not move on course, instead only goes straight north or straight E (O or 90 degree bearing) etc..
I have not posted files on here before so not certain how, there seems to be no option, though I have posted more than 10 times lol, and much more than 7 days.

Edit...got it here

Can you please post that on a separate thread. Piling multiple issues on a single thread makes it MUCH harder for us to keep track of what is resolved and what remains to be examined. Thanks.

Just gave this a try, using B1009.27.9. Multiple runs. In each run, the torpedo behaved as expected: It attempted to engage, it was seduced or missed, and came around for re-attack before running out of fuel.

Here is an example of the last run (oldest messages on bottom):

So, at least with the current public version, I am unable to reproduce the original wierd circumstance.

Anyone else having better luck ?

It still seems to happen in the scenario I attached in post 4 although only in 1 second pulse mode. The torpedo passes by and goes around with high fidelity mode enabled.
