That many subs desending on a CAG would be seen from MILES AWAY(heard by radar/sonar)
You are talking about a direct frontal attack.
The smarter option would be a lie in wait tactic.
What would 6 torpedoes from a Romeo class sub do to a carrier that just passed overhead ?
Or the ramming from a Song-o- class ?
With 70 subs and numerous decoy speed boats the US would be on a tough position at the start.
This presupposes that NK used the element of surprise.
The British lost 6 ships in the Falklands. None by subs but I don't think they counted on losing 6.
You can't afford to under estimate an enemy that is sworn to destroy you.
