Thanks for the answer, i have one more questions which regards the use of submarines. Do destroyers need to be present for other units (planes, ships, artilley) to attack subs? acording to my understanding of the rules subs can attack y their move phase but remain in that sea zone sorrounded by the enemy fleet and can be attacked by all that fleet meaning it will likely be destroyed. This is why sometimes i am reluctant to use my subs. COuld some one clarify this for me please. Thanks.

Destroyers are not required in order to attack subs.
Subs are naval units and subject to attack during the attack naval units combat step when in the same sea zone as enemy units.
Your sub shots at a single vessel amongst a big enemy fleet are quite likely to result in the destruction of your sub in the subsequent naval attack step. Subs, fighters and destroyers don’t have a long life expectancy.
