In one of my PBEM games, where I'm playing the Allies, I had a rather nasty surprise when I opened my opponent's most recent turn to find them sneaking Italian capital ships through the Gibraltar straight. Until then, I was under the (mistaken) delusion that only Axis subs could transit the strait, unless Gibraltar was Axis.

Short of basing a large number of RN ships permanently in and around Gibraltar (which in my game hasn't been possible, as am defending against a Sea Lion invasion in-progress), to try to attack the ships as they transit, is there anything else that can be done to prevent the Axis from transiting the straight, such as occupying the the transit hexes at either or both ends?

What do people usually do to discourage the Italians from sneaking into the Atlantic?

Like you I thought only subs could do this. You can prevent this by stationing 2 ships in each of the exit boxes. So to prevent ships from moving from the Med to the Atlantic you would station the units on the Atlantic side of Gibraltar.

Are you sure this works? What if sub is hidden? I have 4 subs sneak in from the Atlantic.
