Yes i was talking about soldiers diving underwater, not subs. Be great if you could dive underwater but not sure if its possible. As Fuzzy said "nice to have"

Yep, you become a bobber when exiting from a deck gun. I am also enjoying the side bars to the main conversation, especially something long and hard and filled with seaman. However - !) Hawk's digital writing habits are improving greatly! Kudos for that. Keep it up and by the time you get out of school your skills finely honed from these forums may help you get a descent job and/or grades in the university. 2) A map could be created using the more commando-ish qualities of the submarine. Maybe the devs won't, can't, not enough time left in the universe whatever but it may be good for our ever growing legion of most excellent mappers to tackle. 3) My guess is that the coding of something resembling a frogman would be a tough if not impossible challenge but this is something only your dev knows for sure... 4) As stated in other posts, extra room at the least would enable subs to pick up drowning seamen or pilots. 5) I would like to see subs be able to avoid depth charging by changing their depth. Currently, all changing your submarine depth gives you is the ability to be hidden by sight and going underneath other ships. A sub topic (pun intended) here would be if the above was implemented, how would you determine a "hit" by a depth charge? Actually hitting a sub like a bullet? A standard depth of exploding with proximity damage? Could the explosions be controlled to say may one of three depths (shallow, deep, and deeper) as selected by ship personnel, like choosing between AA/AP on our cannons? Waddayathink??

I think the ability to change the depth of the dept charges will be a great thing to add but as you said "like the AA/AP on cannons, maybe only 2 depts could be done, ie shallow and deep, but this alone would be great. Also as you said befor that Frogman would be near imposible to creat, so i suspect no chance of this hapening. On another note, a lot of times in this thread people sugested comando rafts, why not be able to deploy rafts like this just like a halftrack can deploy an mg on the ground. I know in FH1 rafts were made with little engines on the back maybe these could be put in as well. I also agree that spec ops map woould give the community a more diverse amount of maps to choose from, especially seeing the mapers community of FH.

Give the man a cookie. First, Hawk's using paragraphs (hooray), second that's a great idea...may give a sub about 4-5 elco rafts that spawn on deck? Easy, cheap & quick way of doing it.

@Knight: true, I was just hoping that a few minor modifications could be considered for subs to make them a generally more attractive toy. For me, Tulagi is currently the kewlest deployment of a sub in the game.

Hawk_345You know what might be great, those aircraft carrying subs of japan, i think it was able to carry 4 planes in a water tight chamber and then lauch them off a catapault. Im not sure how much they were actually used, if ever, in combat, but maybe might be something to think about.

They were never used in combat, HOWEVER 1. They were planned to be used during the attack on the Panama Canal 2. They were used twice to try and start forest fires in the American Midwest (they failed miserably btw...) And that's a great idea about the deployable rafts. It could be the guy on the deck gun who actually does the deploying.

Uh, you may be referring to the I-400 class of subs and the M6A Seiran they carried; those were never used, although 5 were completed by war's end. These were captured by the US Navy, but scuttled to deny the Soviets access to them.

Several subs of the B1 and AM aircraft carrying classes (not nearly as huge as the I-400, but still...) engaged in naval combat, one of them (I-19, I think) sinking the USS Wasp and damaging the USS N. Carolina.)

The Oregon "Lookout Air Raid" was by an E14Y from the I-25, not one of the Sentoku I-400 subs.

*Looks around* Where's Donuts? He's usually quick to pounce on any posts where we misbehave, so why isn't sub-boy chiming in more here? Negligent and inattentive, tisk tisk.

The reason why Frogmen wont be possible is at the depth of water where you can no-longer see the bottom, the terian turns the same color as the water surface, either that or just blue (not entirely sure). It would look totaly rediculus to swim around in the blue abiss.

Would that really be such a huge problem?

I mean, if you could solve the "dying underwater" issue, I'd be far more interested in having it used to allow people to man multiple positions on subs while surfaced without dying, or to have a hatch and internal compartment that they'd be safe in while the sub's below water...

Deployable Elco rafts would be pretty nice.
