As SSN submarines had advantages over diesel-electric analogs (high submerged endurance, high speed enabling them to avoid contact with enemy vessels, and long range), the development of new ballistic-missile diesel-electric submarines was stopped as inexpedient.

 COMINT [Communications Intelligence] Contributions [to] Submarine Warfare in WW II
These effects of submarine operations have been substantiated, both from Japanese and Allied official records, and for the most part have been made public in detail, but nothing has been told about the manner in which such outstanding results were achieved by such a relatively small submarine organization.
The information furnished made possible the assignment of submarines not only to the most profitable patrol areas but also to specific locations at particular times where contacts were made with convoys of known composition and importance, and frequently with enemy course and speed known exactly.
Without Communication Intelligence submarine operations would unquestionably have been far more difficult and costly because of the vast areas which had to be covered and the attainment of the ultimate objectives would have been greatly delayed.
