ST 0.10.7 Changes August 11, 2021
Temporarily released for Ranked and Co op{alertInfo}

Key Features for U.S. Submarines:
> Long-range torpedoes.
> Small number of loaders.
> High sonar ping velocity.
> Good maneuverability.
> Access to the Enhanced Rudder Gears consumable, which accelerates the diving plane shift time and makes it possible to change diving depth faster.
Submarines of this nation can attack targets from a long distance using multiple-torpedo salvos. However, if you fire all your torpedoes at once, the total reload time will be rather long due to the small number of available loaders.{alertInfo}
