I love ships far more than I do tanks tbh. I hope I won't be this total noob who will die pathetically as I do with WoT in this game when I do play it...

IRL submarines would kill and has killed everything. That's the reason why it wasn't added in the game.

Sub warfare is artificially distressful due to tension. Either they don't find you and you're safe or they do find you and you probably aren't. Surface ships are where the real action is and by action I mean horrible scenes of carnage and destruction.

But that's just me. I've always had a taste for armor whoring in video games, even when it wasn't an optimal set up. I like being tough.

U-boats would be real cool because of the tension involved.

Sadly I couldn't see them being viable in WoW, because they were only really effective at destroying unarmed merchant ships in WW2 (with their deck guns) and did not fair well against armed military vessels.

You must not know much about being in a sub then....

Is that right? I can think of quite a few ships that were sunk in the pacific theatre. Ushio, Ooshio, Taihou, Tenryuu.... and that was just one sub, the USS Albacore.

US submarines were effective against Japanese warships due to the japanese lacking effective ASW.

Japanese submarines could have been effective against US and Allied merchant marine vessels if they bothered to shoot at them.

U-Boats were only effective in the early half of the war because allied merchant shipping had little to no military escort and thus easy picking for a wolfpack of U-boats. As mentioned most U-boats destroyed shipping with their main deck-guns rather than torpedo's which were often unreliable, this meant U-boats often had to surface in order to attack another vessel.

U-boats also had to surface regularly to swap out air and recharge their batteries leaving them exposed to allied aircraft and navel forces.

Later in the pacific the US submarine captains were typically thought more aggressive and enjoyed a technological advantage over the Japanese.

Its important to note that German U-boats were not really considered submarines since they spent a lot of their time on the surface, instead they were thought as medium range boats with the ability to submerge under the sea hence U-boat (undersea boat - Unterseeboot).

I believe the US in particular had quite a bit of trouble with torpedo reliability.

Another game after WoT, I see.

I've been looking through the forum recently. I heard the news that the Soviet/Russian Navy will be next after USN and IJN. They may have their points to get Russian ships in earlier than the RN and Kreigsmarine, and probably not out of bias.

IRL battleships where pretty much obsolete by 1942.

Some folks in the official forums say otherwise, however.

By the way, can I ask you guys your opinions on the Russian navy? Although it was a major lackluster in the WWII, but I want to know what you guys think.

The problem is the big honking NDAs people who've seen the Alpha are under. Apparently I'm also now under them, so I can't even say anything specific now.
