Italian sub diving under Suez canal


Recommended Posts

If you have a sub (in this case an Italian sub, as I hadn't captured Gibraltar) as close to the Suez canal as possible, which is then attacked, and subsequently dives, it can dive 'under' the Suez canal and end up on the southern side.

Subs diving through canals used to happen with the Kiel Canal as well into the Baltic but looking at the positioning of ports there in AOD it probably will not happen for Kiel now. I would think that a port tile could be placed at the Med end of Suez that would make it most unlikely for Suez as well. Clearly submarines should not be able to pass through hostile canals. Straits are however another matter and both German and Italian submarines did pass in and out of the Med via the Straits of Gibraltar. You can make this happen by creating a loop with entrances and exits close by Gib so that whoever owns Gib can attack whatever unit is trying to use the loop. Clearly surface vessels could have attempted to run past Gib but would have been subject to devastating attack, subs at least should have a reasonable chance of getting through unharmed by diving which in the case of Straits is reasonable although it is not for canals.
