having already made up my mind about the strengths and weaknesses about RM subs, I'm currently in the process of rolling Sailors for an SS crew.
Due to having read bits and pieces here and there, for now, I'm getting:
-1 Repper or Seaman
Now, my Questions:
a) Is that sufficient for the latest RM subs? Looking at the shiptree, It should probably be one more. Which should it be then?
b) Repper vs. Seaman: Normally, I would prefer Seamen due to the overall boost they give. But as far as I remember, Seamen only work in the support slots. Would there be a free space for a Seaman in my configuration? Otherwise, I'll roll up a Repper, which can be placed anywhere.
c) Are Gunners any good? In my old NFEU Jap subs, I sometimes put in a gunner for novelty value, though I knew it wasn't really useful. Is that different for the RM? What would you advise, gunner-wise?
d) I read about delay-classing Torpedomen. If I do that, at which level would you recommend to finally torpedo-class standard +11 ones?
I think that was it. Maybe I'll add some additional questions if any cross my mind :-)
Thanks in advance,
