I've just read the interview given by Cdr. Benford (thank you Andy!). Some nice insights into the game.

No torpedoes... hmmmm. WHAT? But this is a Sub game!! IMHO it doesn't matter at this stage. Why? Because as the title of the game suggests, the subs are in the area to wreak havoc whilst being undetected: Laying mines and sabotaging harbours (with, I assume, Special Forces). The subs aren't "going loud" in this game! I quite like the idea of an enemy ship trundling over a mine whilst my sub is sitting quietly underneath a thermal layer (cue evil laughter! devil ), or even better, getting away with a snorting move in bad weather (haha, still can't see me, but I know where you are).

Note: I have no idea of the rules yet, this is just supposition on my part.

Perhaps torpedo rules could be worked in as an expansion or discussed as a house rule some time after release.

Probably THAT was the Cold War! No gun fire at all – just unsettling the opponent by showing him your weapons. Using them could have easily set free the hounds of war.

I agree with you, but… torpedoes would have been nice. Dice or no dice.

I'm quite sure the Geek will house rule torpedoes soon after the game's general release. Andy might even have a possible expansion up his sleeve (pure conjecture on my part).
