Submarines are sneaky Ace cards in Lost Admiral Returns. Submarines can be
used in the battle line to counter enemy battleships and cruisers, but
must avoid enemy destroyers and PTs while doing this. Submarines can also be used to hunt down enemy transports, avoiding the bulk of the enemy's fleet through stealth and speed.
Submarines in Lost Admiral Returns game
move at the normal pace of other ships in the game, but
they can surface to intercept
the enemy more quickly, but are much more easily found and killed while surfaced. The
bane of submarines are destroyers and PT boats. Destroyers kill submerged submarines in one shot. PT boats kill submerged submarines in
World War II in the Battle for the Atlantic,
German submarines and U-boats struggle to torpedo as
many British convoy ships as possible without being sunk
in turn by royal navy destroyers. Historically the
U-boats enjoyed great success in the early days of the
war, but were not able to overcome the convoys quickly
enough before escorting destroyers learned to hunt down
the marauding submarines.
