In a current game my Allied opponent built 6 US submarines which took up positions around the Philippines whilst the US was neutral thus making my attack quite challenging.

I don't mind the tactic but there appeared to be no discernible mobilisation penalty for sending the subs out of US waters. Shouldn't there be? Where are all the outraged isolationists in Congress?

Hey Pete,
Here's a quote from the Strategy Guide (page 13)

The US are best advised to avoid sending any units outside the zone off the east coast, how -
ever, they will only be penalized off the west coast of the USA if they have 3 or more naval units
within 30 hexes of Midway


So, no penalty unless the subs were within 30 hexes of Midway.

I've tried the six sub strategy. It's an enjoyable surprise attack on the Japanese, especially when three subs are placed around Pearl. But overall I found the effort drained too many resources from the USA's response to Germany. You will probably see a delay in the second front. Also, I found that even level 2 subs weren't all that good when attacking an experienced/upgraded Japanese navy.

Thanks Bill. That explains it. Yes - it was quite a surprise but the Germans are quite pleased about it. Time will tell....
