JWE: well can you show us some of those little harbour launches, patrols, minefield tenders, lighters, ...
For both sides if possible
ok, here's a few.
YMS-1, Castle Class Trawler, Beam Trawler-type YP, Fairmile HDML
To’su Trawler, Cha-1 Tuna boat SC, T-51 MTB/MGB, Wa-101
All the different trawlers can be patrol boats, coastal minesweepers, net tenders, you name it. They can convert back & forth with little delay. I kinda like the Japanese CHa-1 tuna boat sub chaser. At 10-11 knots I’m sure it could chase; whether it could catch anything is an open question.
Sounds like my subs are either gonna have a hell of a lot of new targets to play with or maybe places they don't want to go to?
And what exactly does the AI do with all of these, because in WITP the AI didn't really use tenders as intended?
