Sub slips beneath the waves


If I have read this correctly the sub was encountered on the surface as there appears to be no ASW escorts engaing the Grampus or no reports of DCs being dropped. Another little gem that makes this game more epic! Damn my aggressive sub captains though :( They pay dividends but I lose boats as well!

I'm assuming this happened during nighttime?

It appears your sub captain fired a spread of torpedoes first, with two hitting Santos Maru (a large cargo ship, in real life she was over 7,000 tons and was used as a submarine tender by the Japanese). He then surfaced to engage with the deck gun, but the Japanese cargo ships fired back!

The Santos Maru has at least one 15cm gun, which is lethal against a submarine!

As it turns out it was a night surface action. The Grampus is already heavily damaged from a previous DC attack. She must not be able to dive but can still fire her torps to good effect it seems. This Santos Maru barely scraped the 3,000 tons though

I have subs attack on the surface at night all the time. As long as there are no escorts and you have an aggressive commander, you can get night surface attacks.

Yes I know. I get plenty of surface attacks. Notice the difference in this one. Read the CR and you do not see the engaging on the surface message. The sub was transiting on the surface due to damage and I think it was engaged by the armed transports.
