Just a quick question for anyone who has played Sh4. Are we going to be able to travel in wolf packs with other submarines? AI or human controlled?

USN subs did not operate in Wolf Packs in the Pacific, so the answer to your question is no.

Could please clarify RedTerex? I apalogize if i've used an incorrect term. But U.S. subs did perform numerous coordinated attacks and search and destroy missions during the Pacific war. I was just simply asking if this would be recreated or not http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

@Switchman

Historically, particularly prior to 1945, U.S. boats rarely operated in groups larger than three boats. (And then, only for "special operations".)

This was not because COMSUBPAC didn't understand the value of the "wolfpack" tactic: ....It was because there was a vast area of the Western Pacific to cover, and a very limited number of submarines to do the job.

Because this was the typical situation, I think we can forgive the Devs for not modeling group submarine actions.
