watching my midway mission from a static camera i saw the sub sink a destroyer, then collide with it before it had gone...... loud noise and periscope goes under....

never knew if they were sinkable before

tried a 1000kg bomb and it works, but you must get it right on the nose... very difficult

Hi,

I never noticed submerged subs inflict any damage at all before; this sub torpedoed a ship?

In AEP, I've located them from their periscope wash but never have been able to sink one nor see one do much except 'sail' about.

Cheers,
Norris

i just did a test in FMB, placed 3 subs heading towards some stationary cargo, they sunk all of them with torps. just have a look at the pics:

i have also nopticed that if the sub is not submerged it will attack any hostile with his cannon.

Hi,

Cool..never noticed that one before. I set up something similar in AEP v2.04 (I think) with a sub ms Marat (sp?) but never saw it torp anything.

Cheers,
Norris

Actually, this can be done since FB v.1.0.
I remember setting up a scenery when a convoi is attacked by a submerged submarine. Due to the limited AI of ships you have to aim the sub to meet the target at a given time, but when an enemy-ship is in 12.00, it launches torpedoes.
Couldn't destroy it with airbourne weapons though (maybe I didn't try really big bombs, b.t.w. torpedoes were useless), so not very satisfying for a flight-simmer. Collision with another ship (e.g. torpedo-boat) led to destruction of both.
Should like to try again sinking a submerged sub with our arsenal...
