Atlantic Fleet: Convoy SC7
This is a really tough scenario for the British, with a convoy of merchants to protect from a whole wolf pack of U Boats, using only two escort destroyers. The U Boats use a crossfire of torpedoes to make it difficult for the merchants to turn into one track without intersecting another. The escorts also have a difficult job, not only avoiding the torpedoes but also chasing down the submarines without approaching head on. I've played this twice and both times have been hammered. It makes you think.
