Nice, with a valuable information:
"the destroyer can hardly put more than 1000 or 2000 miles, a couple of days of sailing. That forced the task forces during the war to perform lengthy and dangerous fueling operations, where either fleet tankers or bigger ships (carriers, battleships) gave away part of their fuel to the guzzling destroyers".
Would be interesting to see these fueling operations in the game.

So we can sink the tanker?

Sinking fleet tankers, escorts should run out of fuel (if they have limited fuel in simulation).
Furthermore, a very lucky sub could catch them during refueling; what a nice launch, if it happens.
