What is the advantage to having a unit surrender in a pocket vrs having it shatter when you kill it from an attack?

Surrender is always better. The loser can loss basically all it's troops and equipment. Shatter they can save a bunch that are returned to the pools. If I remember what I read correctly.

Manual says this.  But there's only a slight difference. Only in the part where undamaged units gets captured is higher when surrendering.

quote:

15.9.2. EFFECTS OF SHATTERING
When a unit shatters, it is considered destroyed and removed from the map. Ground elements in the unit are affected as follows:

»
»Damaged ground elements are captured
»
»Undamaged ground elements may be captured depending on their experience, the distance from their unit to an in supply friendly unit, and whether their unit is completely surrounded by enemy controlled hexes (If Rnd(60 + range in Hexes to an in supply friendly unit) > experience of ground element + Rnd(200*), the ground element is captured. *this value is 100 if the unit is completely surrounded by enemy controlled hexes).
»
»If a ground element is not captured, and it is a Soviet infantry or cavalry squad, then there is a chance the unit will become a partisan squad in a newly created partisan unit.
»
»If the ground element is not captured and does not become a partisan squad, then the ground element’s AFV/Combat vehicles, devices and manpower are returned to the appropriate production pools.
15.9.3. EFFECTS OF SURRENDER

When a unit surrenders (whether due to combat or in the logistics phase due to isolation) it is considered destroyed and removed from the map. Ground elements in the unit are affected as follows:
Damaged ground elements are captured.- Undamaged ground elements may be captured depending on their experience and the distance from their unit to an in supply friendly unit (If Rnd(120+range in Hexes to an in supply friendly unit) > experience of ground element, the ground element is captured).
If a ground element is not captured, and it is a Soviet infantry or cavalry squad, then there is a chance the unit will become a partisan squad in a newly created partisan unit.
If the ground element is not captured and does not become a partisan squad, then the ground element’s AFV/Combat vehicles, devices and manpower are returned to the appropriate production pools
