and with a detroyer present, the sub cannot submerge. makes sense. thank you so much.
Subs and movement?
I’ve been reading old FAQs here and keep seeing Krieghund’s phrase “Subs can only be ignored during movement” - sorry but I don’t get this. What is considered movement here? Don’t you have to move to do everything?
It means that if there are only enemy subs (or transports) in a sea zone, you are perfectly free to move into or through that sea zone and ignore them. However, if there is a mix of units, say a battleship and a sub, you can’t attack the battleship and ignore the sub. You can never attack some units in a sea zone and ignore others. You also can’t start ignoring subs once they’re the only thing left on the other side in a battle. Thus, you can only ignore subs when moving, not when attacking.
OK that helps!
