icon U-69 German Tier VI Submarine 1940

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

Key Features for German Submarines:
> Short-range torpedoes.
> Large number of loaders, which provides for high damage per minute.
> Access to the Hydrophone consumable with a longer action range and time.
> Access to the Reserve Battery Unit consumable, which temporarily stops dive capacity depletion.
German submarines are a good choice for a risky style of combat at close to medium ranges. You can deal high damage by unleashing a full torpedo salvo, then deliver another painful punch after a relatively short time. After an attack, these submarines can sneak away from enemy radar and lurk around at their maximum depth for a long time.{alertInfo}
