Seeing as two captains have the specialization for this ship is there any plan to add it to the game even if its not a sub?

As I understand it, WG needs a "ship" in game to spawn a commander on, this is why Steven Segal came specialized in the Erie for example.

 

While WG could have used any of the ARP ships for those two captains, creating a dummy I-401 was simple enough and we suspect was a both a nod to the commander's role in the show and a clever effort to troll us forum goers and the dataminers.

 

As it stands though, there's no actual "buzz" about any form of implementation of it into the game, so the consensus is it's terribly unlikely (WG has never actually managed to keep a secret of that magnitude for any length of time it would seem).

 

If there were a suitably similar DD in terms of forward firing torps and minimal deck armament (say something like Mutsuki with the forward firing torps of the upcoming low tier german DDs), I doubt it'd be problematic to do some graphics swapping and make a "sub" out of what was functionally a DD (though any DD is likey too fast but this is just a thought exercise). That said, we don't have such a DD in game to make a clone out of and the whole ARP project has been an exercise in simply adding fancy graphics to otherwise existing ships.

 

So, in short, not any time soon, though if WoWs is successful enough, long enough, sometime they're gonna run out of surface ships to add and subs will be much more "on the table" than they are now (though thats looking at about 2021, hopefully I have a better comp by then).

Yes I did read it and my comment was due to the fact that there is at least one of this type questions daily.

Careful, the repetitive post count police are out in full force tonight. 

Lord, it must be nice to have such an interesting life that all one has to do is act as self appointed hall monitors on a video game forum. :trollface:

If you run the "Extended Tech Tree" mod, you can go to the ARP section. In that section, there is the "I-401". When you click it, it will bring you to the "I-401" which shows as a wildly bucking DD.
