The Deep Sea Hunter is the only conventionally armed submarine. It can attack underwater buildings, ships and other submarines. These submarines are most effective in large numbers (in military parlance, "wolf packs").
They are highly effective against fleets and in the enforcement of blockades.
You require Researchers in order to build them.
Strategies & Tactics
- The only ships that can destroy it are other Deep Sea Hunters, the Viper, the Raider, the Shark, and the Colossus (which has depth charges that can only be launched once every five minutes). The Colossus may be easily countered by moving the submarines when the depth charges are fired. Because other ships cannot attack the Deep Sea Hunter, they can be highly effective against them.
As of Patch 1.01, it is prone to pathing issues near land islands, and may stop chasing a target after being given an attack command, should that target get too close to the shore line. This bug is fixed in a later patch.
- In the Anno 2070 Artbook, the Deep Sea Hunter is referred to as the U96-Deep Diver.
