No wait,  seriously its true. 

If you take a close look at the Indianapolis there appears to be a mini sub strapped onto the spotter plane hanger deck. 

Im on my phone so i dont have a screen shot,  but its there. 

So subs are now in the game!:cap_cool:

Most likely it's a paravane? Would need a picture to be sure

If you consider 'fun' to make the seventeen thousandth troll thread about submarines, you need a new hobby. Humor is witty and dealing with the subversion of expectations. Submarine threads are neither.

Actually i just pulled up the Indianapolis with its fighter, the floats are completely different, the one on the ship has 1 strut, the plane has a 2 strut float. 

I think its a captured IJN mini sub being returned to the states where a 3rd nuke will be installed in it,  then it will be sailed straight into Tokyo harbor if they fail to surrender from the other 2 bombs. 

Thats my story.:cap_old:

Now, that's actually witty. I chuckled. A far sight better than 'OMG look subs are in the game OMZLOLZOR".

Yes, because that leap of logic makes sense. </sarcasm>

A thought that just occurred to me, thinking about the discrepancy between the pylons on the modeled pontoon and the pontoons used on the plane carried on the ship in the game; it's very likely the modelers of the ship have no idea of, or control over, what plane gets put on the ship by the animators / balancing team. It's very likely they modeled the modeled pontoon on the plane the ship historically carried and the balancing team decided that another plane was better / more tier appropriate. Again, this is just a theory.

It's a towed array !!  Ha.....  If subs get into the game you'all are so screwed......  There are a few "real submariners", real vets that would not only welcome the XXI but, would create such a mess I'd bet the forum would melt.

Same with missiles, smart munitions and EW (not the radar but the C3 varieties): there are a few of us that have spent decades, literally, working in, or on, or with these systems or in the serious naval "games/sims" that use modern naval weapons tech.

If WG goes there though, the maps would have to expand 10 fold though: they are too small and the water too shallow for either to actually work....

Subs have been in the game all along. For me, 67% of the time I'm in PvP I turn into a sub.

Most cruisers retained the Curtiss SOC Seagull biplane observation aircraft during the war.   The Vought OS2U Kingfisher mostly operated from BBs.

No US ship ever had any kind of catapult launched fighter aircraft, unlike the totally bogus ones we see in the game.

USS Texas should have a catapult observation float plane as well.
