View Full Version : Why is there no SONAR qualification/specialist?

Was this left out of the sim or did U-Boot Kaleuns let any crew member man the sonar gear? I can have a radio specialist or a torpedo specialist but no sonar specialist?

Seems odd.

A radio specialist works as a sonar specialist, they are essentially the same thing. Thats what I seem to find anyway.

Correct in my experience too.

That one had me foxed for a while too. Perhaps it would have been more appropriate to have Sonar instead of Radio as a skill.
I imagine that identifying type, range, speed and direction via passive sonar takes a bit more skill than using a radio and Enigma encoder
