Anyone clogged this?

The Swirl map for Escort is abit hard for me. Not been able to win as the US, protecting the convoy ships. A sub always manages to get through and sink the last convoy ship.

Any tips?

As I said in the guide, you generally should be using planes as they're faster and can respond to the most threats. Corsairs are almost overpowered on the map, because all three Japanese units can be destroyed by it.

-PT boats are sitting ducks for Corsair machine guns and are far too slow to be able to be effective; they can also be easily sunk by the escorting DDs
-Kates are also sitting ducks. They're considerably faster than Gyoraiteis, but they're also much larger targets and manoeuvre like bricks.
-Type Bs you can eliminate by simply spawncamping them using rockets.

If you have any non-AI teammates, they can either go Corsairs with you or work with Elcos, pouncing on any subs you miss with rockets.
