Battleships and the Sub menace

Ok I have been playing WoW from the early production 2015 and have been quite comfortable playing in big safe battleships. Accepting with the recent changes to DD's the  longer and further use of torpedoes but its now getting to the stage where its not fun anymore.

 

I cant say that i'm a good player I do it because I enjoy playing and I try to mix it up with smaller ships for enjoyment and like most others have spent my fair share of money of ships and infrastructure over the years.

 

The onslaught of the Submarines was I thought a good idea and a natural progression considering that during the WW2 these made a big contribution to the destruction of allied shipping so it only seems right for Subs to be introduced into a WW2 game so I was happy to learn of their inclusion and I did get involved in the test server. 

 

But the battleship, in reality would have had some kind of indication that a Sub was near (sonar/radar) and would have then let the escort ships do their duty with the depth charges  and I think this indicator for the battleships is missing.

 

Currently I have no chance of fighting off a Sub approach either by gun (Guns to inaccurate on large ships) fire nor a change in direction to save any attack on my ship. Its therefore not making the current open production test for Battleships any fun as I cant get close to the action in fear of being wiped out.

 

Can we investigate or see a change to future releases to include the ability for Sub detection for Battleships at least to give them a fighting chance otherwise its not going to be fun anymore to play the big boys and eventually WoW.

The people who know how the game works disgreed from the beginning.

BB do not have much to worry about.

DD are hit much harder.
