Key Features
The main armament of the submarine is composed of six torpedo tubes with long-range torpedoes in the bow of the hull, as well as a 140mm main calibre gun with SAP shells, under direct player control. The sub has excellent surface manoeuvrability, but it is significantly lower underwater and has limited dive capacity. This makes long dives impossible for the I-56.
