Subs can have rigging aswell as naval ensigns

But flags flapping while under water? That will look weird.

Breaking News: Wargaming cancels Submarine class.  "@#$% guys, we forgot there's nowhere to put the flags".  Player "Legio_X_" hailed as hero by community.

Not really because they will flap when the ships moves and water passes over them.

Remember the sub ist sill moving through a fluid, so the motion dynamics will be similar.

With surface ships you have riggings. With subs, you have.............??

Subs could fly signal flags off conning towers and those cables from conning tower to the deck. I remember seeing German U-Boats displaying signal flags displaying their successes as they sailed into their bases.

Why should they have to be displayed in the first on any ship. Other players aren't going to see them unless they are colliding with your ship. 

Just check them off and put a small decal on the conning tower. 

Or better yet don't display them at all. The only person that needs to know is the player.

I saw a few subs in port in Portsmouth, VA back in the day and I seem to remember a line (cable) that stretched from stern to the conning tower and another that did the same thing from the bow to the conning tower.... I do remember seeing pennants on them and don't know if the lines were something they only put up when they were in port or not. The pictures I have seen of subs at sea don't show them so guessing this was just for parade or in port inspections/events. We really need a bubblehead to chime in..

As long as one of the first "flags" you can get is a broom, I'm in. 

A broom achievement would be awesome.

It's not weird. Water is a fluid. If you consult basic physics, air is a fluid too. It's just not as dense.

...the cart way, way ahead of the horse.  Flags were modified for CVs, it's not an issue.  They have torps, they flood, potential for fire, speed, and of course the USSR subs will get heals so......

I can't wait for WG to introduce new physics for "wet cloth" when the sub surfaces. I'll probably have to buy a new graphics card just for that!

For a very long time, carriers could only fly 4 signals. Trying to remember when that changed and IIRC it was about the time of the first big RTS carrier rework (yes one of those happened) when they gave the Bogue a 1/1/1 load out option.

Fluid Dynamics is still a thing, so why would it look weird?

Careful what you wish for. The Flamu stated that unda da sea things might be wetter but not all that better when it comes to FPS. I hope the requirements don't hammer players with lower end hardware. Personally I run a gaming rig but there are plenty of peeps that play on laptops and the like.
