Subs have already gone live, but I don't play them so I wouldn't know.

is there any talk about letting submarines use their deck guns, when they go live?

The ‘deck guns’ on the Halloween subs were active; so I’d would imagine they’ll be active under the new mechanics at some point; but of course, there’s been no mention of when or if such will happen, so far.

I’m hoping for this, cuz the type XI uboat, surcouf and M1 has “dd” sized, 8in and 12 in guns, respectively

The Type XI U-boat would have been equipped with 128mm (5in) guns, while Surcouf was equipped with 203mm (8in) guns.

One thing to keep in mind about the deck guns on submarines is that they are typically smaller caliber than the weapons on destroyers. For example, Cachelot was armed with a single 3in (76mm) deck gun. HE from this gun would only penetrate 13mm of plating. Tier IV-V DDs have 10mm of hull plating, while tier VI-VII DDs have 16mm plating.

Such weapons would be of very limited usefulness, and all but useless at high tiers, being only able to damage the hulls of a select few CLs.
