My bad, I somehow thought it was a Global post…
Subs - first strike than submerge?
my sub is being attacked by a bunch of boats (no destroyers). can I take a first strike than submerge right away without battle. or if i take a first strike i have to participate it combat?
You either submerge or fight - not both. If you take your surprise strike, you have to suffer the return fire (unless of course your attacker is a single ship that’s neither a sub nor a battleship and you hit it).
