Submarines are versatile craft that are best utilized when submerged deep underwater. Submarines can launch torpedoes while submerged, are hidden from
/craftlist unless they are detected on a craft's contacts, and their pilots are made invisible while under y level 54. These qualities make them perfect for stealthy operations in open waters, although they are fragile once detected and targeted correctly. Submarines cannot surface above y level 66.
Submarine operators should be extremely careful around Destroyers, the dedicated anti-Submarine ship class. Destroyers can deploy numerous Depth Charges in order to damage Submarines, as well as Bombers.
The craft can also have Periscopes, which are useful when scouting underwater.
The Submarine has a special Direct Control mode that allows the pilot to easily move in three dimensions, and is superior to manual movement during combat operations.
