Dive

Submarines have the unique option to 'Dive'. This makes them submerge and renders them invisible, unless another Unit stands next to them. While submerged, they use more Fuel. While submerged, Submarines may only be attacked by Cruisers or other Submarines.

Strategy

When facing Submarines, make sure you have several Cruisers around your other Naval Units. Try to use smaller, cheaper Units as bait to lure them out, or if you know there's a submerged Submarine nearby, try to waste its turns, so that it needs to refuel. Air units also fare well against submarines, as well as land indirects.

When using Submarines, only dive when you need to, to conserve fuel. Always target the significant Naval Units, such as Battleships. Avoiding Cruisers is key to extending the lifespan of a submarine.

Trivia

The Orange Star Subamrine is based on the American Virginia-class submarine.

The Blue Moon Submarine is based on the Russian Akula-class submarine.

The Green Earth Submarine is based on the German U-Boat.

The Yellow Comet Submarine is based on the Japanese I-25 class submarine.
