Could be great if in the future italian submarines are added. They had a lot of submarine types on WW2, there was also minelayer ones.

It would be an interesting Mod as I know next to nothing about the Italian Naval Campaign in WW2

If they add decent sub AI in expansion it would be great to have playable italian subs, no playable allied subs would be even better.

The British used hundreds of subs like the salmon class to protect the north sea and coast against german ships (not against uboats so much)
Still british subs sank a significant number of U boats in WW2. would make an interesting twist to stumble accross one in SH3, you would only be able to fight one surface to surface, or submerged to surfaced, since two WW2 subs would not be able to engage each other whilst both submerged as they would both be completly blind http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

The Brits, Amercians, French, Dutch, Polish and Russians all had subs in WW2 no just the axis, it would be really nice to see some in SH3, regardless of how irrelevant they were to the battle of atlantic. They were still naval units and they WERE there! thats all that matters to me.

I belive British submarines sank about 30-40 or so U-boats due to the fact The british did occasionally use submarines to ambush U-boats on known patrol routes.

While U-boats, only sank about 4 British subs during the war, oh - and couple of frenchie ones. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

According to http://www.uboat.net, 19 (or 22 dependent on where you look) german U-boats were sunk by allied submarines, the british counting for 13 of them.

there is a mod for SH2 where you get plenty of italian submarines. It's called "Regia marina Alfa Tau" , you can search the net for that.
Don't know if they will make one for sh3.
