I preferred these to the main Aquila missions, they are short & sweet.

Whoever program the merchant boats AI in The Sea Wolves should be shot with grapeshots. They keep going between my boat and the ebemies, and you expect me to sink them this way?

So for The Sea Wolves mission, I immediately went to right of the two columns so I wouldn't get stuck in the middle of the AI, chain-shotted the first enemy ship to the right so I could get to it later, grape-shotted the second and rammed the third one. Went full-sail for the fourth one and blocked off the other ships, went all out to take him out before the suicidal ai rammed into me. Turned around and finished off the second one i grape-shotted earlier and full-sail rammed the first one. lost 2 ships.

Now The Giant and the Storm was a pain in the @$$. The first five ships were piece of cake, and well the second set were also a piece of cake, which was the problem not to kill before exposing powder. Went full-sail and rammed the man-o-war (not sure if that's how you spell that) an

finally got sea wolves. got very lucky that the enemy ships missed all their shots. lost 3 boats. helps to ram the ships if you can. so may problems with this game and not a single response from ubisoft acknowledging that they'll fix the problem.

ok to expose powder go at full sail but before you hit drop to no sail and you'll do enough damage to expose powder but not sink it. takes several times for the big one. oh and there's a fun glitch where you fall through the sea or get stuck on your side. enjoy...

To expose their powder stores, cripple their masts with chain shots. Immobile, all they can do is fire broadside shots at you. Maneuver your ship for the side of their bow and ram it. The reticule should show up if the enemy ship isn't badly damaged enough. Also aim and shoot quickly.

I found this mission quite easy, all i did was sail to the right hand side of my allies and then ram in to the first three ships before flame shotting the last ship twice

I'm still unclear as to what the difference between these missions and the Aquila missions are.

The Giant & the storm is by far the hardest it took me over 1&1/2 hours then I did the 1st ( easy BTW ) buddy was right about 1 thing take them down with chain shots but I coins never finish the last guy off with ramming him so I figured out all u have to do is park in front and cannon ball until the power room opens this is a lot easier than rammin - that's for people who only want 100% - just beat it for the achievement lol

Tired the Sea wolves one twice and beat it both times. Just can't that 100% synch with my retarded allied ships. Overall, I thought that the naval missions were entertaining.

Okay to confirm how to complete the Giant and the storm...sink the first 5 w grapeshot...then chain shot the next 3, twice to the sink the two destroyers by ramming the bow- start at full speed the drop to no sail-and aim w mini guns at the front end and once it turns red fire...with the man-o-war, park in front shooting the bow w round shot and aim w mini guns after each bout and shot when it turns red...100% after trying this first time...thx for that strategy

Ramming never worked for me on full upgrade ship took out sails on all three then parked in front and lobbed regular cannon balls at front only till icon showed. Took about 40 tries. Credit to sporksaregoodforyou on YouTube.

Other 11 contracts were no comparison to giant and storm mission

Absolutely fuming about this. After an hours attempt I finally did the giant and the storm one. However I got desynchronised by a rogue wave straight after as it wouldn't let me press X as the mission was technically over. Such bullshit.
