When enemy ship(s) have been found, the patrolling task force will gradually gather information about the enemy force. This process is called ''spotting'', and its progress is measured as a percentage which is visible in a tooltip. When the enemy force is 100% spotted, it becomes possible to engage them in battle.

[[File:Strike Force.png]] A task force assigned to the ''strike force'' mission can automatically intercept and engage enemy forces within their fleet's assigned regions, ''after'' an enemy force has been fully spotted by a [[#Patrol|patrolling]] task force belonging to the same country. The strike force does not need to be in the same fleet as the patrolling task force in order for this coordination to occur.

Each raiding task force can only efficiently cover 1.5 strategic regions. If a fleet does not have enough raiding task forces for the area it covers, their efficiency will be reduced.

[[File:Convoy Escort.png]] A task force assigned to the ''convoy escort'' mission will come to the aid of [[convoys]] belonging to the player or their allies if they are attacked. This protection is extended to all of the fleet's assigned regions, although the number of regions that can be efficiently protected depends upon the number and size of task forces performing the mission within a given fleet. Along with other important information, this maximum number of regions is visible when the cursor is hovered over the convoy escort mission icon in the centre of any region where the mission is taking place.

When the [[Map#Strategic_navy_map_mode|strategic navy map mode]] is selected, existing convoy routes are shown on the map. This can be useful for determining which strategic regions require convoy escort coverage.

[[File:Minelaying.png]] Ships with minelaying equipment can be assigned to ''minelaying'' missions during wartime. They will continue adding mines to each assigned strategic region until 1000 mines have been laid in each region, at which point the regions are considered to be fully saturated with mines.

Mines will be laid in all assigned regions at the same time. The rate of minelaying per region depends upon the number of ships in the fleet which are part of minelaying task forces, and the number of regions which have been assigned to the fleet. Each additional region beyond the first causes a reduction in minelaying rate per region.

[[File:Naval Invasion Support.png]] Task forces assigned to the ''naval invasion support'' mission will escort convoys which are ferrying friendly troops to perform a [[Battle plan#Naval invasion|naval invasion]]. Once these convoys have arrived at their destination safely, the assigned task forces will hold position adjacent to the landing site to provide support via [[#Shore bombardment|shore bombardment]] as long as a battle is taking place. If there's no battle or the battle is over, those task forces will return to their home port.
