"......Small, quiet subs which can lay doggo in the right places and fast gunboats/missile boats would be especially well suited to fight in this environment.
Survivability might be low, but the emphasis is on destroying superior forces with lesser vessels(--right up a jihadi's alley).
Air power can be a decisive factor."
The thought of catching hard targets in shallow water must give some of our Orion or Viking ASW types a......well, great feeling of enthusiasm.
Only bad news is that they might run out of targets before they all get to fire live rounds.

Probably have the ASW guys creaming their jeans, at least until the first warhead went critical. That might mess with the avionics a tad.
We have to remember that (enough of) these guys just don't think like normal people.
