• SO I’ve been playing 1942, only have a few games under my belt.

    I’m sure this has been asked a MILLION times, but I seriously need some clarification on subs.

    1. With no destroyer present - Do they only fire ONCE while in battle? If a sub hits, can another sub be taken as a casuality? 
    2. If sub attacks sub, do they only fire at each other once or does battle continue for more than one round?
    3. With no destroyer present - If sub fires, and misses, does the opponent get to fire back at all? If sub DOES hit and destroys the only target, I understand that the opponent does not get to fire back, an I understanding incorrectly?

    Thank you for the help!

    @CptnKeener:

    1. With no destroyer present - Do they only fire ONCE while in battle?

    Once per round.  If there is no destroyer, they fire in step 2, otherwise they fire in step 3 or 4.  Steps 2-6 occur in each combat round.

    @CptnKeener:

    If a sub hits, can another sub be taken as a casuality?

    Yes.

    @CptnKeener:

    2. If sub attacks sub, do they only fire at each other once or does battle continue for more than one round?

    The battle continues until one is hit or submerges.

    @CptnKeener:

    3. With no destroyer present - If sub fires, and misses, does the opponent get to fire back at all?

    Yes.

    @CptnKeener:

    If sub DOES hit and destroys the only target, I understand that the opponent does not get to fire back, an I understanding incorrectly?

    Any ship sunk by a sub with no friendly destroyer present does not return fire, unless it’s a sub.  Since sub fire is simultaneous, two subs can sink each other.
