Got the game yesterday and I finished the campaign (sweeet!) and now I am trying the Challenges. Can't win the last Air-Challenge and the Ship-Challenge where you start with 3 ships and you have to fight waves and waves of enemy ships....damn, pretty hard! ! Any hints? The submarine missions rock!

I find that the plane challenge is the hardest. You have to sink two King George class BBs with lots of air cover. What I did first was have one airfield launch Betties with torpedoes and one airfield launch all Nell's with torpedoes. After that I have them all group up ahead of the fleet and once they're all there I send them at the carrier. If you don't lose too many planes, the carrier should sink on that first run. After that just concentrate on one of the BBs at a time.

i beat the airplane challenge which was very difficult
but i did it by sending waves of bombers only with torps
en mass. I grouped everything into one huge wing of bombers
and took out the escort carrier first and then worked on
sinking the two bbs

Plane Challenge: Attack on Force Z (I played this mission 13 times now: No way! Whatever I did the two battleships manage to escape...with only 50% or 30% health left)
Ship Challenge: Battle of the Java Sea (Ok, finished that one but the next one is even harder...:mad2: )
Sub-Challenge: Coup de Grace (WTF??? I tried everything but I just can scratch the carrier b4 I get blow out of the water)

The challenges are hard nuts to crack. I mastered Call Of Duty 2 and 3 on Veteran without any problems but BM is kinda....arghlllll.....:mad:
Oh well....never give up, never surrender...

alright i just beat coup de grace
here is what i did: I started out by leaving the sub to the north where it is and taking the helm of the southern sub, i headed directly at the cruiser with my sub on the surface, once the catalina got within 2 miles, i went on a crash dive so that by the time it got to me and dropped its depth charges, i was already too far under to be hurt by them. Next i put all engines at stop and resurfaced. By the time i got to the surface, the pt boat was within range of my artillery and i quickly sunk that. The flight of bombers with depth charges will be in the area and i just stayed surfaced and let them depth charge me. Took off about 75 percent of my health. i then went to periscope depth and started my way towards the cl. Four quick torps and it was sunk. By this time, the destroyer that patrols around, was on me. I had an epic battle with it but was only able to put 1 torp in him before i was sunk. Since the northern sub is the only one left, i started heading towards the destroyer that was heavily damaged from my previous sub. I fired one torp and sank that one and then tried to lure the Dehaven towards me since sinking it is the mystery objective. A head on battle with a full spread of torps didnt go well for the Dehaven and it quickly sank. I immediatly resurfaced to take out the pesky PT boat. Now all that was left was the aircraft carrier and that is easy to take out when it has no defenses.

Hopefully this will help anyone with their problems with this challenge.

OK, thx a lot, I will try that right away! I finally won the last Air-Challenge. If you know HOW to do it, its pretty easy. I am also stuck @ the third Navy-Mission (damn, what a pain in the ...) but "First Thing First"
Coup de grace, here I come! :D

Yeah, I did it but in a very very cheesy way! LOL
I just took both submarines and let them dive to the ground with full speed ahead. 1 mile in front of the carrier I took them to periscope-level, shot 8 torpedos and "Dive Dive Dive!" again: Carrier: Gone! Mission Over! :whistle:
Edit: Done! Finished everything! Awesome Game! Now lets play multiplayer! :-)

I've got a question about the 2nd ship challenge mission entitled "Battle of Java Sea". For some reason, I can't seem to get to the last wave of ships in which the Houston is in. I always get killed on the one before that last wave. Any tips on how to get past all the waves with my ship(s) still intact?
