excel at hunting down CV's. I have zero interest in subs but if they can do that I will play them just to touch the untouchables.

Bets on my CVs being the best counter to them. The ability to respond to a time sensative spot with rocket planes seems likely.

I tried subs and CVs on PTS.

Subs are certainly capable of hunting CVs, but they need to travel on the surface (becoming vulnerable to incoming fire), otherwise they are too slow... but considering many CVs don’t even move, you might have a chance.

If the CV commander knows how to effectively move their ship, you will likely never get the chance to sink it.

On the other hand unless you make a mistake, CVs have (currently) no way to directly harm a submerged sub.

Until something is done about the shotgun/porpoise maneuver ships without ASW capabilities have zero counterplay against them. Historically or in a sim the DE's and DD's would take care of the subs but they wouldn't be doing that job while being shot at by surface ships.

The main problem is there is no deffence against a submerged sub.

Nothing can touch them but dd and some cl and they never have to surfic they can recharge under water for crying out loud.

Plabes should have death charges at least.

Yeah, it's not like WWII carrier, cruiser, and battleship-launched planes could drop anything like a depth charge.
