Whether under the sea or up in the air, these Japanese subs were as versatile as they were deadly.

Combine subs and planes in one tight neat package, good idea, this is just what the game needs. Surely you are smoking the good stuff =)

What about London tube?

Being from the UK I've always wondered when the London Bus became an official measure of distance :)

Wargee..PLEASE activate sub secondaries...if @ least for the hilarity!!!!

 

Spotter planes on subs, and you can switch to it in POV mode ala CV rework camera controls, or fighter plane for strafing run on surface ships. It will then land back on sub, when you surface, and you can dive again. The downside, will be compromised characteristics of the sub itself.

Interesting premiums?

LOVE how you guys keep innovating..Keep this game fresh guys, don't let it turn into WOT or WOWP (I love warplanes tho, as stuck as it is)

Anyone gonna mention how the Akula is clearly a Typhoon in that silhouette?

Typhoon is the NATO code name.  The name of the Class in Russian is Akula or "Shark".  It is confusing because NATO used Akula for a code name for a contemporary Russian fast attack class.

They're warming the players up for IJN SS that can launch manually controlled bombers.

Which reminds me: have they announced off of which class will subs branch out?

all those joints to historically fold up the seaplanes to fit inside the subs, hope it contributes to low plane healthpools if WG has those ideas

Looks like the oncoming submarine thing is getting more interesting like it's starting to be cool. A vessel capable of three dimensions of offence/defense perhaps?

 Very surprising that World of Warships is coming out with type B Japanese submarine I 400 which I haven't seen since 2016 2015

 completely flying under the radar it seems

  Cold War submarine it doesn't seem that the Cold War submarine at the bottom is best suited for this

 

French submarine surcouf coming into the game surprising

Just imagine what it might have been like if the I-400's had each been loaded with four copies of the V-1 buzz bomb, the warhead section loaded with chemical/biological weapons. That would have been quite the terror weapon if launched against West Coast cities and military installations.

Wasn't the Class "Typhoon", but the Russian destination was Project 940 (or 941) Akula?

We can call it interesting game play but it's a huge downer for me because I love submarine but hate plane game play; it's way too fast paced and dynamic for my taste (Yes, I've tried it multiple times). So if the IJN SS line relies on flying planes, then that's like adding my least favorite fruit to my favorite chocolate cake; it looks so tasty from the outside but I know I'll hate it when I take a bite. I would even speculate that many players share this sentiment and would lose all interest in such a line.
