This may be old news for most long time players, but this is the first time I've ever seen this (Me as Allied AI). The AMc is definitely gone, so there really was an attack. My first NZ ship loss in a home country hex against the AI. And on the far side of the island as well.

I absolutely love that this happened. A few turns ago Yamato crushed a few of my unescorted LST's and AKs near Green Is when I got sloppy. But seeing it was pure joy as well.

That is fun! Overall, the games seems to very accurately reflect real-life capabilities of midget subs, in that they seem like a waste of time in-game.

Has anyone had a different experience, or good luck with them?

Does anyone just use them for base defense, as kind of underwater PT boats?

I use them in the open ocean where enemy convoys have run over them, and ships have been torpedoed and sunk.

Really? How do you keep them fueled in open ocean? Group in same hex as a larger sub?

Nope, the midget sub carrier drops them off and I immediate set them to patrol that hex. Then the midget sub carrier gets its own patrol zone nearby.

I've had some good luck with them in the base defense role you cite. Analogous to underwater PT boat swarms. A bunch of the bastards at a base my opponent tried an amphibious unload into. They did some serious damage to escorting BBs and several transports too.

Interesting, do you break the swarm into lots of 1-boat TFs, or keep them as mini-wolfpacks? Seems like alot of work to create 1-sub TFs

Wolfpacks do not work, only one sub will attack.
