Was playin on midway the other nite with a clan buddy of mine and we went 2 a nice sized server, had a blast 2, well was on the amrican sub and i was escortin the battleship whihc was bein controled by my buddy and i had a guy with me on the mgs on the sub, well we were prowin roudn and come across teh jab fleet which seemed like all of em where in ships so the battleship went down and i had my freind and some1 else with me, but anyway, i think that there needs 2 be some better aa guns on the american goto sub, the jab and german 1 has a nice gun on it so i think the american sub mgs need 2 be as good, and also need a way of gettin other players into the sub if u have 2 submerge like i had 2, was really fun all and all but just figured id post that lil story and what i thoguh needs 2 be worked some

Hmmm just for the interst factor, and I think would indeed atrract a lot interest the japanese I-400s aircraft carrier subs (yes, i know.. it could go on a operation olympic map though) and the french submarine cruiser surcouf which did get its nose dirty a few times. The I-58 with loaded up with suicide subs or with a seaplane. I-58 also sunck the indianaplis. http://www.tamiya.com/english/products/31435i58/i58.htm human torpedoes
The I-58 was laid down in Yokosuka Navy Yard in September 1944. The vessel carried a Type 0 small reconnaissance seaplane E-14 (Glen) and a catapult to launch it. The primary weaponry of the I-58 consisted of six torpedo tubes, three on each side of the bow. It also served as the mother ship for the Kaiten human torpedoes. On the night of July 30th 1945, it attacked the U.S. Navy heavy cruiser Indianapolis with a salvo of six regular torpedoes. Two of those struck the cruiser and she sunk about fifteen minutes later.
Some interesting examples of subs and plane here, such as the s1 loading a seaplane in the 20s. http://www.hazegray.org/navhist/carriers/odd/index2.htm
