Hell has been unleashed on those souls in the form of 28 torps speeding directly at them.
 

 
As our torps rip into them - they feebly try and return fire.

 
This first volley fired is like shooting fish in a barrel.

 
As this first salvo tears through them our pack dives deep to reload for then next devastating attack.

Wolves now surface to scope depth and fire at will.
Escorts seem to be clueless on how to deal with this new tactic as the battle for the Atlantic evolves.

 
Escorts finally decide to converge on one contact

 
Ships continue to explode everywhere

 
At the end os the second round of 28 torps, a juicy target is spotted

Battle over - we count up our tonnage

 
With only a handfull of ships surviving - They carry a message back to Churchill.
The kriegsmarine now has the upperhand in the Atlantic and Britain will surly starve.

Move in for the attack



Didn't the wolfpacks attack from each side? I see 7 uboats, including the player uboat, attacking from the south and none from north.
Is it possible to have them attack from each side? Just curious. I haven't modded such stuff for years, so I don't know anymore.

Hi Carotio tiphat

Yes you are correct here - this is an old set of pics using the stock game formation for wolfpacks.
From v1.7 onwards - I have coded in new formations and when you select wolfpack from the missions, they will now attack from all sides and this will be staggered with time.  Some attacks in the new versions can last as long as a whole day as boats break off and re-attack the convoy again and again j12

When I am finished playing through Monsun Gruppe (still testing for bugs), I will do a pic set showing the new coded attacks - together with TDWs IRAIv0.37 - it is worth seeing beatnik
