Is anyone aware of a convoy game out there.  Have always been interested in Corvette, DE, DD, etc against subs, surface raiders, and planes.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Actually, an Escort Game Mode might be fun. Limited to 7 vs 7 or something like that, and the remainder of the slots are given to a convoy of simple AIs in special Transport Ships. They have no guns, aren't exceptionally fast, but the AI is smart enough to execute evasive maneuvers against torpedoes. The objective of the attacking team is, of course, to destroy the 10-ship convoy while under fire from the Defending team. The Defending Team's objective is to get the AI transports from one side of the map to the other, or sink the attacking team. Objective XP could be given to every member of each team depending on how many transports were destroyed for the attackers, and how many transports survived for the Defending team.

 

The balance issues I see are DDs and CVs, both of which can theoretically just torpedo the convoy to death without issues.

I like your thinking.  Most of the details are in place.  Torpedo parameters from subs needs some thought.   Also depth charge patterns.  I think a drop box that has the sub entirely in it is a sinking.  If somewhat in the box some damage.  Not in box at all miss.  Sonar could be similar to radar now.  Planes and AA same as they are now.  Surface combat as it is now.  A limit to torps and depth charges would add realism .  Wouldn't be as much of a run and gun game but tactics would be fun.  Was thinking 16 ship convoy 5 escorts.  Yes get convoy from point A to point B on map with a max ship loss goal.  Game would include all classes of ships and subs.  Could be fun.
