I have heard of real-world talk of having a manpad easily deployed to the sail bridge. But having the sub so-exposed to begin with is not a good idea. I don't think CW does.

Maybe someone else has a better explanation.

I thought some older soviet subs had manpads attached to the periscope.


Again probably too exposed....

Newer subs, at least the German type 212A/Italian Todaro class, can launch missiles with anti-air capabilities from the tubes; but in 1984, I guess we're stuck with legging it when a helicopter shows up.
Edit: Just FYI

"The Interactive Defence and Attack System for Submarines (IDAS) is a submarine-launched, lightweight, multi-role, fibre-optic guided missile system being developed for the German and other partner navies.This weapon is designed to provide improved self-defence and asymmetric warfare capabilities for submerged cruising submarines. It enables the submarines to engage threats from anti-submarine warfare (ASW) helicopters, small- and medium-sized surface vessels in covert operations, and pre-selected coastal targets. [...] A prototype of the IDAS missile system performed its maiden flight from an underwater test facility in Northern Germany in 2006. It was successfully launched from the German Navy's class 212A submarine in the Baltic Sea in 2008."

That's a loooooong way off from CW's time frame.

Edit 2: These missiles have also been tested on Norwegian subs; given the necessary electronics are on board, I guess they could be launched from any standard NATO 533 mm tube.
