In the last post, I mentioned that B-17s were used as antisubmarine platforms as well as bombers.
I looked up anti submarine platforms and Wikipedia, under Antisubmarine Warfare listed antisubmarine platforms as being both air, sea and underwater. And it was the use of mines and torpedoes.
So, a B-17 encountering an enemy submarine would drop torpedoes or mines on it.
That is an antisubmarine platforms.
