I got the guy with the special ability for Ahead Emergency. I activated him (I clicked his icon out of curiosity) but don't know how to deactivate him so I can save him for when I need him.

I believe you can not deactivate him. He will perform the upgrade for 6 hours, then you have to wait another day until he can do it again.

That's correct, gotta use him up.

I remember what got me the first time I had that guy was I neglected to read the part where he helped speed ON THE SURFACE. I was setting up an attack and planned on using the speed boost while submerged. Caused me to not be able to close on the track fast enough.

You can also use two of these guys and get 23 kts if you activate both or run them back to back for longer periods at 21kts

Well, you might consider it a cheat but if you save, exit the game, and then load the save, the specialist "resets". Otherwise, don't use this specialist until you really need him. Normally that would be for a night surface attack - my preferred attack.

I think I described the use of the specialist to set up an attack on the Kongo as its TF was exiting the Formosa Strait. That particular attack was very difficult because the TF was changing course frequently.

Yes I had 3 in one campaign - very handy.
