Stats Updated Apr 17th 2020
* 1st Stats for this ship.
Please Note! The stats for this ship are not final, and will almost certainly change during testing. 
When this ship is finalised and then released, the final stats information will be published here as "Final Stats" and on the official WG regional portals.

American Submarine VI Cachalot 1933

A relatively medium-sized submarine by U.S. Navy standards, Cachalot exerted considerable influence on the development of this type of boat in the U.S. Navy, becoming the predecessor of the "fleet submarines" that would come later.

The main armament carried by submarines is torpedoes with acoustic guidance. You can launch an attack from any level, and submarine-specific mechanics—sonar pings—will help you increase the potential effectiveness of your torpedo salvos. Tag the bow and stern of an enemy ship with your sonar pings to help guide torpedoes to the target and deal more damage.

Always be aware of enemy destroyers and cruisers. Ships such as VI DallasVI Budyonny, VI Leander, and VI Perth,  carry depth charges. These weapons can hit submarines that are submerged. avoid staying in the same location for too long, and in case of danger, seek support from your allies.

Battery Charge Consumption:   25 units
Watch your battery power and emit sonar pings carefully. Torpedoes can ascend from the depths and hit an enemy only with the help of an active effect from a sonar ping. If you run out of battery power, reduce your speed to 1/4 or ascend to the surface level to recharge it.
Emitting sonar pings increases your detectability. Be sure to consider this when you prepare an attack.
