USS Gato - American Tier X Submarine 1941 - 28,000 Steel


flagshipicon USS Gato - American Tier X Submarine 1941

The U.S. Navy High Command conceived that "fleet submarines" were to complement the sluggish conventional battleships. With a high surface speed, heavy armament, and long operational range, they were supposed to conduct reconnaissance and finish off enemy ships once artillery duels between battleships ceased. However, after the attack on Pearl Harbor, their strategy changed, and a new type—Gato—was geared for extended patrols. Comfortable for their crews, these submarines carried a large fuel supply and torpedoes. USS Gato was laid down in October 1940 and commissioned in December 1941. The submarine conducted thirteen combat missions, earning the same number of battle stars and the Presidential Unit Citation.

Key Features of Gato

  • The submarine is armed with ten torpedo tubes with a long reload time, six of which are located in the bow and four in the stern. The number of loaders allows you to simultaneously reload only half of the torpedo tubes. 
  • Homing torpedoes have high speed but low damage and very short range. Regular torpedoes have slower speed, but higher damage and range. 
  • Gato has a high speed on the surface, but a low speed underwater.
  • The tactical basis for her will be the use of conventional torpedoes, staying at a comfortable distance from the enemy. The homing torpedoes are useful for self-defense due to their short range.
