In Dali's 1943 Italy scenario this happened when i sent her to the coast of Naples. Interestingly the turn report says it hit a mine afraid it was heavily damaged went to see the status.

Perhaps the Germans left one of their wooden anti-personnel mines floating in the surf ...

Yes, I saw that. I was suggesting the motorcycle unit planted the mine.

It is just a motorised versions of Japanese Fukuryu

BTW, nice mod. Like the color palette of the map.

Interesting line in the article suggests the Italians may have had similar divers:

Surprise was essential to avoid comparatively simple anti-personnel explosive countermeasures previously used to discourage Italian frogmen in the Mediterranean.

I knew the Italians had "frogmen" to operate their mine-laying torpedo craft, but if they had free-swimming troops to attack boats and ships I never heard.

Interesting. So did Luigi become a chocolatier after the war?

Might be some editor errors involved? But the result is funny so why not )
In reality this could've happened when the motosquad was sent to investigate the shore, encountered a mine-hit sub making emergency repairs and showered it with MG fire. But then, those are Italians so shenanigans can be expected instead.

Inventor, for example that spear gun that 007 used in Thunderball movie was from a company he worked with http://www.luigiferraro.it/en/node/1054

He sunk 3 merchants and failed in another because British divers found the limpet charges.

Sub not damaged so i guess it was a very attentive motorcycle squad and a reckless sub commander surfacing near coast.
