In the 'consts' file, in the list of special naval units, the 'electric' sub is named a 'long range sub', which makes much more sense, as all sub types use electric power when submerged, so 'electric sub' means nothing.

I propose 'electric sub' should be changed to read 'long range sub', to match the in-game info with data that is already in the files and much more appropriate.

During WWI and for some time after, the long-range subs were often called "fleet" subs, and I believe the USA continued the usage until 1945.
Their operational doctrine was not the same as the WWII commerce raiding ones, but perhaps the name could be used to differentiate?

The main thing is that the name 'electric' sub means nothing and the relevant slot in the special naval unit lists of the various scenarios consts files is filled by 'long range' sub, which at least means something. I am not sure if the parameters chosen for this unit truly represent the title, but that becomes a matter of adjustment.
