Defect Name: Dipping Sonar not activating
Build: HCE 2008.044
Repeatable: Y
Operating System: XP
DB used: HCDB-081124
Scenario used: Dipping Sonar not activating.SCm
Long Description: Dipping Sonar not activating while prosecuting sub contact because the helo under AI control operates at Low altitude and not VLow altitude.

Sequence to reproduce:
1. Run Dipping Sonar not activating.SCm from Red side with Show All and Active Blue sonar ring activated
2. 4x SeaKing helos will launch from base to prosecute your Alfa sub
3. They will close and then drop a torp
4. At no time will the helo activate its dipping sonar
5. Active Sonar range ring will appear, but it will be false. (This is bug is already reported.)
6. Select helo Unit in Unit Window and hit F9 to see that Active sonar is not even an option available to the helo.
7. This change is due to the new HCE behaviour requiring helos to only deploy dipping sonar at VLow Altitude. In previous HC versions, dipping sonar and sonobuoys deployed when the helo stopped at Low altitude.
8. Not only is the dipping sonar not deploying, sonobuoys are not being dropped, either.
9. If the VLow requirement is to be maintained, then all ASW helo operations should be moved to that altitude by default.

Expected behaviour: Helos prosecuting targets or on patrol should deploy dipping sonar
Observed behaviour: Only helos under manual control can be ordered to VLow to activate dipping sonar

Defect Name: Instantaneous torpedo resolution [Originally reported by Vince Reckall]
Build: HCE 2009.036
Repeatable: Y
Operating System: XP
DB used: HCDB-090427
Scenario used: GIUK 6.0 "Fortress Keflavik"
Long Description: Torpedoes fired from submarines to ships 3nm-4nm away hit at once without running the distance. Also, there is no launch/hit animation (if active) and the Ph does seem unrealistic

1) Load up save game Instantaneous torpedo resolution.HP1 from attachment under HCCE version 2009.032 (the first version this oddity was observed under was 2009.030). Play as USSR.
2) There is one Soviet Foxtrot sub north from Iceland, with a BLUE battle group in torpedo range. Attack the ships in range (they are an Iowa BB and a Virginia cruiser). Distribute your torpedo salvo the way you wish.
3) The torpedoes appear on the map, and then disappear *at once*. The log sometimes shows a torpedo hit, but not always. Repeated attempts with multiple torpedo salvoes (5-6) during testing always produced either one hit or none. Also, NO animation is displayed (if you have them turned on). Finally, the torpedoes do not "run" for the whole distance (about 2nm-3nm) but whatever happens, it happens at once.

I was able to reproduce this problem every time. You can wait for a better fix on the BLUE units: the oddity in the torpedoes behaviour is the same.

Notes: I found the same odd behaviour in another scenario (Gauntlet) but I wans't able to save that situation.

Expected behaviour: Torpedoes should launch and resolve normally
Observed behaviour: Torpedoes launch and resolve instantaneously

Defect Name: Nuke blast range error [Originally reported by Vince Reckall]
Build: HCE 2009.036
Repeatable: Y
Operating System: XP
DB used: HCDB-090427
Scenario used: GIUK 6.0 "Fortress Keflavik"
Long Description: Nuclear torpedoes fired from submarines to ships 2nm-3nm away hit at once without running the distance. Also, the target ship is not destroyed! (but those in the blast range are)

Sequence to reproduce:
1) Load up save game Nuke blast range error.HP1 from attachment under HCCE version 2009.032 (the first version this oddity was observed under was 2009.030). Play as URRS.
2) There is one Soviet Foxtrot sub north from Iceland, with a BLUE battle group in torpedo range. Grant yourself Nuclear Release (Alt+F3) Attack the large ship in range (AA00) with a salvo of 4 nuclear torpedos (she is a Iowa BB, with a Virginia cruiser to the south).
3) The torpedoes appear on the map, and then disappear *at once*. The "Nuclear hit!" animation appears with the Iowa silohuette. However, the Iowa doesn't sink - but both the Virginia and the Foxtrot (that are within the nuclear blast range) do.

I was able to reproduce this problem every time. You can wait for a better fix on the BLUE units: the oddity in the nuclear torpedoes behaviour is the same.

Expected behaviour: Target within Nuke blast range should be destroyed with surrounding units
Observed behaviour: Target within Nuke blast range survives while surrounding units are destroyed

Defect Name: Torps cannot acquire
Build: HCE 2009.036
Repeatable: Y
Operating System: XP
DB used: HCDB-090427
Scenario used: Torps cannot acquire.hpm
Long Description: Torpedoes never acquire target regardless of which direction and distance they are fired from. Torpedoes do work against other submarine targets. The distance the target is away from its group icon and formation patrol zone may be one possible explanation of this behaviour.

Sequence to reproduce:
1. Run Torps cannot acquire.hpm
2. Order BFa to attack sub ZVu
3. Re-attack from as many angles and distances as desired. Torpedoes never engage sub and just sail past

Expected behaviour: Torpedoes should track target and engage
Observed behaviour: Torpedoes sail pass target
