I was just sitting here thinking about the different American sub classes available during WWII, S-class, Narwhal class, Barracuda class, Perch class, Salmon-Sargo class, Tambor class, Gato class, and Balao class. Are all of these Sub classes reprenseted in the game? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I started my career PH 9th Dec 1941 and you get to pick from 3, Porpoise Tambor or Gat don't know if that was short for Gato? as I see in the post above there is a Gar class could be it I never paid that much attention as i wanted to get started. Though come to think of it why would they cut Gato down to 3 letters, so it must be a Gar.

As I said in another post, my 1st mission was to go to my patrol station west of the Marshall Islands, 600m west of them. 30 days I patrolled that area not 1 enemy contact and only 4 US ones all well over 500m away. I was set on easy as a test run, and I don't know how much days of fuel you have when your on the higher settings where you would use your fuel up. Its a 10,000m round trip PH to MIs.

I say I don't know how many days of patrolling I would get out of my fuel, as unlike in SH3 in the Nav icons there is no icon to tell you if you do x=speed how many miles can I travel. If its there I can't see it. I miss the crew icons of SH3.

I would have to believe that it must have been a Gar class sub. If the game models Sub release date's realisticly. Gato class subs didnt begin to enter service untill late 1942, early 1943. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

No the Tang was a sub of the Balo class.

Thanks for the clarification Wilhelm, i'll slowly remove my foot from my mouth. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Truthfully though, i do remember reading sometime ago i'll admit, that Gato class subs had production problems and delays. Well this is what happens when you have trouble remembering your name some days. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif
