I understand this has probably been asked a thousand times but up until my prnc I never ever considered submarines but after the breifs and seeing one at faslane it has kinda made me open minded to change, right now im going in as a ws (surface) but was wondering anyones opinion as if i should change to submarines or stay surface (bearing in mind im 16) I understand there is downsides and ups to it but just wanting some opinons thats all.

Do what Wrecker says and join surface and transfer to sub(boats) later if you still feel the same. The upside of joining direct is that you should get into the RN quicker but don't let that be your guiding factor.

Damn interloper :rolleyes:
Knew it wasn't you wreckes he was a sprog with only 20year done, not like you father time:)
The upside is called surfaced, the downside is called dived.
I like wreckes did skimmer first, I enjoyed both for different reasons.
