Finished the new Arp challenge and was given three additional captains. A bear, Iona, and Gunzo.

 

Iona and Gunzo are marked as captains of ARP I-401 submarines.

So does that mean we will see submarine some times in the future  :yes_cap:

No,  there is a dummy ship called I-401 used for assigning captains that don't have a ship, ex: Iona and Gunzo. It's not playable, but it is kinda cool to see that they are assigned to the sub they use/are in the anime.

I don't know whether the search feature is broken, but I searched I-401 for the ARP captains and came up with nothing.

Yeah I was going to answer, because they are in that ship in the show

Somebody did some math

 

Assuming WG produces 4 ship lines a year and then looking at the likely pool of nations that can field at least mostly complete lines of ships and then accounting for other side branches (USA for example could easily make another BB line and have several CA/CL/DD branch lines)...

 

Somewhere around 2020-22 you start running out of surface ships that could be easily added to the game...

 

If the game were still a profitable success at that point, and given that MMOs such as this survive on new content..

 

It stands to reason that the time might come for submarines.

 

We've got a ways to go yet.

There was some talk when the ARP content was first introduced that I-401 MIGHT be introduced, but it would play like a destroyer.  Would have been cool even if it was just a fancy DD, but nothing ever came of it as far as im aware.

 

So, i guess at one point someone was considering adding a submarine :hiding:

Submarine icon in game. Hoenn Subs confirmed. 

 

I think its cool that they did that. Even if the sub isn't in game.

Even though the icon was used for the Transylvania/Transport boats.  *cough*

 

Anyways.  There is no Submarines.  However there is a way to see submarines... You just need to go off course on the warships site...

I was wondering the same thing, so yay, I have answers (even if they aren't the ones I wanted). That said, the arp captains can only be used on arp ships, right? So if I want to use Iona or Gunzo or Bear Kirishima, I must remove an arp captain from another ship? If so, that's sad... It'll probably be a cruiser or two (but not Takao, definitely not Takao), but a shame there aren't ships for them. And ya, special tier IX or X destroyer for Iona would have been awesome.

...even if it were for a different kinda CoOp mode... or just as a surface ship only with crazy detectability and a decent reload since it has almost no surface guns... :unsure:

Search feature must be broken yet again...lol...it's like this thread comes 4-5 times up every time there is a ARP event.

 

Not broken - look for "ARP Sub" and the first result explains what you see.  You need to do more than one search.  Sometimes numbers and letters are not specific enough and sometimes it can be too specific.  I and 401 ( or eye, 4, 0, 1) are used so often the results are garbage in any search engine.

There is no tier 11 to play - period.  There are no subs as noted in many posts above this one.

Remember the Halloween event?  The three ghoulish additions were tier XI ships.  You won't play tier XI ships in normal play.  That doesn't mean that it won't happen on events.

Notice, it's Tier 11?

Notice that ARP ships are specifically no different from their normal counterparts [as stated a few times]...

Not only is the ARP I-401 in the Special Tier, that means it's normal counterpart, which by all means would be the T10, is too.

 

No Subs.

It's not happening.

Iona/I-401 was originally planned for a special ARP mode, likely as a boss/special ally to fight or assist.  The model existed for awhile and was used for the TXI tree image but was not actually visible in-game (had to be modded to be seen; was used as a floatplane replacer mod for awhile until that broke).

 

Here's the video of the model having been replaced into the game as a floatplane:

Is it possible to replace the DD placeover with the model for I-401?

 

If the I-401 model still exists, it's possible, given how some modders previously made the Yamato model work on a DD for fun, though the guns and torps fired from within the model's shell and the Yamato's own guns didn't move at all (and AA didn't track). It'd only show up for you, while everyone else still sees your regular DD.

 

Personally, I would not know how to do it, but you could try asking around the Modding section to see if anyone has the I-401 model from that video, and could edit it to replace, say a Shimakaze hull. Or a Khabarovsk hull. More likely though, the I-401 as catapult plane mod was likely from the Asia server, so you may have better luck asking them if you have an Asia account.
