...and can't actually bombard land units. Just thought I'd share.
Yeah, that's pretty silly.
In civ5 before g&k, embarked units were still considered as "land". Maybe you can try to pick that promotion and test it against an embarked unit to see how it's handled now...
It's not a bonus to BOMBARDING land. It's a combat bonus *against* land units. Think about that a sec.
It means they can have higher defense against artillery and such.
A sub with promotions against land units:
1) Gets a bonus when attacking an embarked land unit
2) Get a defensive bonus when attacked by a ranged land unit
Just to clear that up.
That's not so odd. Many WWII subs, on which the Civ5 sub seems modeled, had a deck gun with a bore in the five-inch range. In the early days of WWII the Axis' doctrine was to cripple a ship with a torpedo hit and then surface to actually sink it using the deck gun.
In 1942, the Japanese submarine I-17 actually shelled (To little effect) an ocean side oil field in California's Ventura County.
