Yet another sub question.

Post by frog » Tue Nov 13, 2012 8:24 am

Here I go again.

the allied player attacks Japan with 2 subs and 1 destroyer. Japan has 3 subs.

The allied person rolls two dice for sneak attacks, Japan has no destroyer. He hits twice. Japan removes two subs without ever firing them. Destroyer misses.

Correct? Or do all subs fire first, just not a "sneak attack" then casualties are removed? Meaning Japan rolls 3 dice, U.S. rolls 2, then U.S. rolls the destroyer after all subs have fired.

Japan hits once. Allied player removes his destroyer.

A) japan can now submerge sub OR
B) Both subs fire, no sneak attacks

If the allied player had not removed the destroyer, he then would be able to fire his surviving sub with a sneak attack. If hitting ending the attack and the Japanese would be unable to return fire.

Correct.

Japan can submerge, or both sides fire with surprise strikes. However, the net result is the same, since both sides get them.

Yes, because the Japanese sub would not get a surprise strike.
