In my experience, submarines cannot load or unload unless they are in a friendly port, and that includes SSTs. This comes from my repeated attempts to unload commandos on a neutral beach (no base present), without success. I'm going to have to take that back, I just unloaded supplies from an SST at a friendly base hex with a port =0. What are the relevant considerations?
To invade from subs, you'll want to load "parachute-capable" (airborne) units in combat mode. You should be able to unload on any beach/port, hostile or friendly.
The game engine could not distinguish between ranger-type units and other infantry. Rather than allow all (or no) infantry to do sub invasions, this was the compromise kludge.
