Trying to understand the sub doctrine option and if it exist any more in WitP:AE. Can't seem to see it in 'Realism' options. But it's still incorrecly mentioned in manual.

6.2.12 SUBMARINES
Submarines are sent on patrol as a TF, usually with only one sub in each one. The computer
can assign patrol orders, or you can choose to give it a DH yourself. Missions for submarines
are Sub Patrol, Sub Minelaying, Sub Transport and, if midget submarines are available, Midget
Submarine and Midget Submarine Carrier. A good strategy for using submarines is to send
them to choke points, or patrol near major enemy supply areas. With the Automated Submarine
Operations option turned on, the computer will take care of creating sub TFs and will send
them on patrol so you don’t have to order them individually (although you can still take any sub
TF off of computer control). For greater realism, Japanese subs can be set to use the Japanese
Sub Doctrine (see section 2.4.1 Japanese Sub Doctrine).



Although in same manual (PDF) section 2.4.1 is ...

2.4.1 FOG OF WAR

This switch controls the amount of information that either side can receive regarding the
enemy. Historically, the commanders relied on spotty and often incomplete information on
which to base their strike decisions. In War in the Pacific, Admiral’s Edition™, the player may
select whether they wish to place themselves more fully in the same shoes as their historical
counterparts.




Can somebody please let me know if there is a difference between Allied or Japanese sub doctrine in WitP:AE? Or are subs just alike now as far as doctrine is concerned?

Thanks

Once upon a time (but after the manual was printed), Japanese sub ops had a command switch that could toggle between more and less historical doctrines for sub warfare. Hardly any Japanese players used it, of course. Eventually, it was dropped altogether as it was one of the least used / popular 'features' of the game.

Thanks. Makes sense to me.
