Default Playable Whale

Can't believe no one came up with this before, but here it is a playable Blue Whale for Cold Waters! Based on the Narwhal, it shoots, it scoots(slowly), and poops noisemakers! Currently for single missions only and campaigns that have the Narwhal by default as it's a Narwhal replacement.

Notes: Don't go slower than 4kts, doing so will result in a soft crash.

Last time I've made a playable whale it was always trying to get his nose down and go straight for the bottom)

Same here. The trick is to order a depth and course and your crew will fight the whale on what it wants to do. Also, don't order all stop, it crashes the game.

Judging by log, WhaleAI kicks in when whale model is used... That is a bit strange desision to make it like that... but I guess it was more convinient for the devs)

What if the whale also had miniature whales that it could use to sink the ships? Also, what if its blowhole could launch missiles?

This is a very funny mod. Just flinging out more ridiculous ideas.

Imagine having a small submarine truly disguised as a huge humpback whale with a very very close signature would be truly a great strategy who needs a Red October if you can have whales DDD

Is the goal to fire our torpedoes at as many female whales as possible?
