I have had the game for a long time, but over the last few months I have reread the rules over and over. I set up a test game for going over the mechanics and have reached the same issue. No bite to this game !!

I have a small convoy with 14 ships. My sub's attack factor is 4-2-3

I selected 3 ships my luck ... DD 7-2 CL 5-0 and a Merchant 1-0

I have an ace skipper of +1 My TDCs were +1/ +1/ 0

If I have to allocate my attack between three ships, the best I get is an attack of 2 +1 for the ace skipper. -1 for the torpedo I can probably beat the cargo ship and nothing else. Regardless of how long I can re-attack, the capital ships are safe from my torpedoes.

Seeing that I work at the Newport Naval Base, I turned a cold eye to the faulty torpedoes of -1 and that doesn't help me much. Am I missing something ?
