Times are a changing for this great game of ours it was not that long ago people were talking about fire breathing British battleships causing chaos and mayhem.

How times have changed, so onwards and upwards to the future for WOWS, and the new age of Submarines, as a fan of all things Naval I look forward to the arrival of this new ship type though there will be many tests and trials before we get these stealth Monsters to fit into game play i foresee a golden age for the game.

WG has announced the two power houses of submarine warfare as the first lines to come into this great game exciting times ahead i believe.

So how will work will there be National Flavours for the various nations lines and what will they be i ask myself history tells us a great many things about the Steel Sharks of Oceans.   

Germany with its famous and some say infamous WOLF PACK TACTIC, will it work against combat vessels time will tell.

The United States " Silent Service " as they were called chose for the most part the LONE WOLF tactic though i believe at some stages introduced a modified WOLF PACK system but i must admit my knowledge on the Silent Service is limited so i'm certain wiser heads with better knowledge USN submarines tactics will  enlighten me with a wealth of information.

But i digress I'm getting off track here there will be plenty of time to discuss the National Flavours of the two TITANS of undersea warfare this post is about what might be A WORTHY style for the sleeping giant that is the VMF, what could be the best tactic for there Submarine service in this great Game.

I woke up this morning my head still abuzz from the news from a few days ago heart racing with anticipation that in the not to distant future I would be hunting down lone defenceless battleships with no remorse no pity, survival of the fittest and it pleased me. 

i new how i was going to play my U - boats when they came into being but what about Russian Subs how would they work what has WG got in store for them as National flavour i thought, then it struck me BRAWLING and after re watching WG very informative video on the heroic exploits on K - 21 against ARMED TRAWLERS.

So i believe that any self respecting Russian Submarine player of the future will need to have SECONDARY BUILD ship to get the full potential of this flavour.

I also believe to get the quintessential benefits from a National Flavour like this WG MUST introduce ARMED TRAWLERS in to the game, after all The Battle Of The Atlantic hung in the balance if were not for the TITANIC struggle between the Russian Submarine service and Germany's Formidable ARMED Surface Trawler Fleet. 

I urge all Community members to put pen to paper I mean fingers to keyboards and implore WG to introduce ARMED Trawlers and make Russian Submarines National Flavour GREAT.

They could make Russian subs great at rusting in port and sinking hospital ships.

At least then we'd get a dark laugh out of this travesty of an idea to add subs to WOWS.

I am sure Russian subs will have anti-ship missiles and homing torps. They will find SOME way to make them just a little bit better than the in tier competitors.

Flavor ? screen doors and radiation leaks come to mind, oh and self immolating ordinance at higher tiers, their special ability can be "blame the Americans."

German subs will be easy to kill.

British subs will be specialist sub hunters.

IJN subs will be given great damage torpedoes.

French subs will be wierd.

Italian subs will have deep water torpedoes.

USN subs will adhere slavishly to the published data...which is all absurd cover for the fact that the USN retains the classified barrier on submarine performance from 1942 on...

Russian subs will be the fastest, hardest to kill, and hardest to find submarines.

Glory to Soviet Russia!

you forget the German secondaries IFHE spec subs. (or will that be a tier 8 USN Gato class variant?)

    They get nuclear meltdown with a new captain as a special skill. Instead of healing once HP reaches a certain point your sub just sinks and slowly drains the HP of all the opposing teams ships within X km. You do not want to know what happens in the event of a 'detonation'.

So, get this out of the way - I am by no means a expert on subs - I am simply going with the two known nations and RU based on what I see in pictures and wikipedia.

 

USN - Many of these seem to have higher speed, least on the surface, than the other two, they also, surprise surprise, seem to have had a bit more in AA so likely higher speed than Germany and RU, with better AA.

Germany - Until perhaps IJN comes in (especially given the midget sub they used in the event) I have a feeling these may be the more "traditional" stealthy sub, possibly with better secondaries than USN (while USN has a single 127 mm or 3 inch Germany usually seems to have a couple deck guns)

Russia - These may actually be based around secondaries more - they seem to be slower, look bulkier and possibly better protected, and seem to have more guns to shoot at other ships with. Likely still want to avoid fighting regular surface ships on the surface, but may be able to finish a ship off better with them or frustrate CV's more that it can catch up to. 

 

Or in simpler terms  - RU likely hunts other subs, Germany more a ship hunter, USN, likely somewhere between that.

They'd also be good at detecting mine fields...but only once.

First full French tech tree... Then Italian full tech tree, after IJN, Italian, French and finally Russian subs... Please, the Regia Marina deserves more than a few premium ships.

Surely the flavor of Russian submarines will reflect the nation's success in the Great Patriotic War.
