this would really help germany
i dont see any historical reasoning, however. it wasnt that destroyers weerent good, its just the destroyer to transport ration in allied convoys were highly neglectful.

I’ve been considering giving a try to the following in my next game: (Someone posted this before, not sure who or where though)
- Each destroyer can expose and negate the effects of one sub per sea-zone.
- Destroyers now cost 6.
This would encourage the purchase of more destroyers rather than subs in fleets to be used as meat-shields since they also defend at 2. Subs would be used more exclusively in their traditional roles as convoy raiders and opportunity hits rather than fleet screens as they are with the current rules.
