I am having no luck when attacking German Subs as the CW. I get adjacent to a sub fleet and have one AP left and I cannot get the CW fleet to attack. Dows the CW fleet need to be on raider or fleet to make the attack? I just get a message saying the CW fleet cannot move on the same hex as the German sub.

Subs can only be attacked by the escorts assigned to the convoy lane (automatically), or by air or CV units

Fleets can't attack subs. Only exception is when the sub is in a coastal hex meaning no more in the ocean.

You need to assign escorts to your convoy lanes.
And, you can place a "sub hunter" group on one convoy lane to add a bonus protecting your merchant marine ships.

A "sub hunter" group is composed of DD and/or CV.


And, yes, thanks Franciscus, you can place bombers, if they are in range, to attack subs.
Best is to take a strategic bomber with the detection and electronics speciality.

How do you place a sub hunter group in the convoy lane.

Thanks for the answers.

One more question: Will the be a message in the game when the Soviet Union can take out the Baltic States, and Bessarabia?

Like this, just place your naval stack on top of one of the hexes of the convoy lane.
It's range is 24 hexes around to give its bonus if I remember well.

There is a message saying this is done. It is automatic.
