What are submarine sandwiches called in Britain?

    Of course, they aren't called that in the USA, but only in parts of the USA.
    That's true. There is an old thread that offers some variety:

    Forum discussions with the word(s) 'hero' in the title:

    and the WR English dictionary adds still more:

    sandwichbomber, grinder, hero, hero sandwich, hoagie, hoagy, Cuban sandwich, Italian sandwich, poor boy, sub, submarine, submarine sandwich, torpedo, wedge, zep

    a large sandwich made of a long crusty roll split lengthwise and filled with meats and cheese (and tomato and onion and lettuce and condiments); different names are used in different sections of the United States

    I must take exception to the WR dictionary's inclusion of Cuban sandwich as a synonym for hero (or sub, or grinder, or hoagie).

    A Cuban sandwich is not a type of sandwich; it is a particular sandwich, consisting of ham, roast pork, swiss cheese and pickles, pressed and melted together is a most delicious artery-clogging mass.
