What more can the emperor ask from its sub crew, other than this excellent kill in the middle of a deathstar.
It is the first time i have had one of my subs kill off a carrier in one strike.
The Lexington sunk the next morning, with full flightdeck and pilots going down with her.

Medals, Sake and Geishas await this crew when they sail into port.

Banzai! An exceptional result!

I've been on the other end of a result like that when CV Zuikaku was sunk by a full spread launched from a Dutch submarine.

I had a great attack in a Guadalcanal scenario where one sub fired two spreads at two US carriers in one turn, sinking one and probably heavily damaging the other. Best sub attack I've seen on a CV task force.

The greatest day in Allied submarine history. Six CVs (or was it seven?) attacked and hit by US subs. Read em and weep for joy..
