Recenty i received my 2nd edition with the misprinted naval cards. The replacment cards were here in almost no time (6 days from the us to germany). Unfortunately it seems that my version lacks some convoy cards also (which i discovered only after receiving the replacment).

How many convoy cards are in the game altogether? I've 20 convoy cards (ending with Nr. 50), so i am missing 5 Cards from Nr. 51 to Nr. 55, right?

No, there are only 20 convoy cards.

The purpose of the reprint was because there were no 'escort' cards previously. (IE., the 'merchant' cards number 86 to 100, IIRC, were not 'merchants' at all - but escorts that should have been drawn from a different deck. Only there was no way to know that. Reprint fixed that.) Ditto most the 'naval' cards - the majority were incorrectly labelled 'merchant' (but not all - 111 and 112 were fine, so you'll need them from your original deck). As well as 113 to 115 - the 'fleet escorts' were fine, too.

Thank your for your answer.

I thought i was missing convoy cards, because the rules refer to Lone (L) , Escorts (E) and Merchant (M) type contacts, but i have only Merchant and Escort convoy cards. No of my convoy cards is showing an (L)-Type contact. Is this then some rulebook flaw?

So the cards with nr. 51-55 are what? Merchant Cards?

Hrm - not sure I see that reference in the rulebook. I assume the 'lone merchant' types are the convoy cards 32-35 that the later campaigns instruct you to remove from the deck, but they don't appear to be specifically called out?

No idea - maybe they intended those to be a distinct type in some earlier printing or something, but it doesn't seem like they are currently in the deck.
