I haven't been playing the game very long, but this is the first Canadian convoy my u-boats have run into. Are they common? I am speculating that it only happens if the Canadians build merchant ships.

Canadians send resources to the UK.

Yes, but are they not usually carried on UK merchant ships? I had noticed before that if you raid the South Atlantic convoy route before the fall of France your u-boats will get 2 chances to sink merchant ships; one against the UK and a second chance against the French. I assume it also means that your u-boats have double the chance of sinking and being sunk by escorts. But until now I hadn't experienced u-boats getting 2 attacks in the North Atlantic; one against the UK and the second against the Canadians. I assume this only happens if the Canadians build merchant ships. If so, than IMHO, it is a mistake for the Canadians to build merchant ships early in the War. This gives the Germans 2 chances to sink merchant ships rather than just 1. But later in the War when escorts outclass subs than it might be a good idea. But I don't know if this is how it works. I haven't even played a game until the US is in the War.
