Sub question



  • The Italians and Germans have fleets off the coast of DC. USA builds 6 subs. This forces Italy to either move away or stay and attack USA on Italy’s turn. Germany does not participate in the battle when Italy “attacks” USA (by not moving away). Italy does not have any destroyers. Germany has 2 destroyers. Can the USA submarines submerge and retreat after the first round of combat?

    If Italy has no destroyers, the US subs can submerge before the Italians can even fire a shot.

    However, Italy is not obligated to attack subs alone, and can also choose to ignore them and move during the noncombat phase if they wish.



  • Thanks very much.
