I'd be glad that SH3 dev team to add a Narwhal class... I think it will be cool to command a kind of a underwater CL... Guess You say what for, why someone would like to have one..? I like to destroy convoy going surface near middle of it and sinking some merchants with torps & guns before the escort would like to come... I think a firepower of two sixinch guns would be quite good for it. Also I rather like to command big submarine, than a little one (in SHIII i like IX's [UA would be great but there's no chance to get one ;/])

It would surely be nice to skipper such a canoe....

I hate to be a history nazi, but anywhen... The one time they tried to use the Argonaut (which was similar to Narwhal and Nautilus) as a regular fleet submarine, it promptly got it's ass handed back to itself during a convoy attack by a trio of Japanese destroyers, which was the worst single loss of life (105 men) on a US submarine during the war. :dead:

I enjoyed running Argonaut, Narwhal and Nautilus in SHI, and the boats were accurately represented; that is, they had two big guns, but were slow, slow-diving and unmanueverable. It was very hard to survive in them, which is probably why the latter two spent most of the war as running supplies to various places.
