I used to be big on the silent hunter series and other sub sims.

 

The type 21 u-boat was a prototype that never saw action as it was developed right at the end of ww2.  If it had come earlier, it may have changed the outcome of the war.

Compared to other U-boats and other nation's submarines, the type 21 had a sleeker profile and was actually faster underwater than it was on the surface.  It had better batteries and electric engines, allowing it to stay submerged longer and move further under the water.

It had 6 forward torpedo tubes, and two rear iirc, while most other U-boats only had a 4-1 setup.

Actually a few saw service but with standard batteries and the subs already have ludicrous speed when submerged and it is still too slow to get anywhere in a reasonable time while submerged.

If you used to be big on Silent Hunter and other sub sims, then why do you want to come to this big gun game and screw it up?  What is so dam important about accommodating sub drivers, are they special, have more money, dress like anime girls?  I cant not see WG's stubborn logic in forcing a class of ship that dose not belong in the game.

All subs will do is drive off a portion of the player base, and when subs under perform more then all the other classes and get a stupid buff it will drive off even more.

This game is just getting dumbed done every update so as to accommodate the got to have it now, Mountain Dew fueled, button pressing no thinking, prepubescent, ADD teen that has access to daddy's credit card.

Where was it written that this was only intended to be a "big gun" game?

The only reason subs weren't included from the jump is they couldn't work out the mechanics of how to incorporate them from the start.

Unfortunately the CV rebork removing multiple squadrons per CV removed that roadblock for them...but I only say unfortunate as I don't like the new CVs... I'm looking forward to the subs...if for nothing else so I can figure out how to use them to wipe out the CVs.

Sure, there's a high degree of certainty type XXI will be the T10 german boat.

I'm holding out for Skipjack as the USN contribution to Tier 10.
