As per title is this being considered?

I know as opposed to AA its just a consumable at this stage though if they are truly to be implemented into random pvp play just wondering if certain nations/ships would be stronger weaker in regards to ASW.

They are different, I've found at least 3 different setups, they don't vary by much, and most of the variance is number of charges in a drop and number of drops and some small difference in the damage per charge.

Overall pretty much the same right now.

In theory yes they should. In practice IJN dd would probably be the worst at it, nerfing even more the torp line so they may make them quite equal.

Look in the tech tree for CLs at tier VIII and X that  carry HYDRO; those MAY be the ASW capable cruisers. Not certain just a guess.

Yes by default the stealthier DDs would be the better sub hunters therefore perhaps less DC damage/AOE.

I am thinking that the French line of DDs could become really powerful ASW ships simply due to their speed and ability to quickly run down a sub.

Yes a strong ASW DD line is needed to calm the rage. Similar to the PAN_EU AA...

Something a sub driver would go 'uh oh' when seeing the MM lineup...similar to when a CV sees a Fries or Kidd.

I am also wondering if the Asashio will get ASW armament or will she still be mainly limited to hunting BBs and CVs?

That's an interesting point. I'm sure it will. Haven't had a chance to try PTS so I wonder what subs are going to bring to the table in regards to long range torp spotting. Thankfully aircraft are gimped in this regard though subs of course have two axis of avoidance when it comes to torpedo beats. Lower torp detection perhaps?

German & RN DDs also have the added perk of having Hydro on them.  The High Tier German Hydro in particular is going to be nice because of their range.

Premium Lo Yang also has very good Hydro on her.
