These supply devices became priority targets for the Allies to prevent extended uboat operations ...... Right now, they operate with impunity .... there should be a means of tracking these suckers down .......

Currently there is a unknown percentage chance that they will be intercepted. I've never seen it happen, but Alvaro says the chance is there.

I agree there should be a higher chance in proximity to enemy fleets or territory.

Once again, another example for an active, player controlled convoy system.

Not sure I understand ... but want to avoid a non intentional "freebie" for one that is not ...

Yes, it is true there is a possibility.
The only way to intercept these supply oilers is to have an allied submarine within range.

Personally, I would like the fleets that operate as ASW to also be on this roll of the dice.
