... 4th, Southeast AND 5th fleet are considered as theatre commands in Scen one, and multiple land locations and land units are related to their command, and if any of the units under their command conquers a new location, that shall befall under their jurisdiction respectively, etc...even though all of them are fleet commands , as well and at the same time...this is also a fact, very clear one...
What the implications of this, I don't know...your insight seems pointing out that in spite of them being theatre commands, they shall not bestow command benefits to the units under their command radius...indeed?
Alfred is quite correct, but there are some other things going on. The confusion arises from 4th Fleet, 5th Fleet, and Southeast Area Fleet being attached to themselves; i.e., they do not report to a ‘higher’ HQ. They are, therefore, at the top of their respective OOB reporting trees (kinda ‘theater’ level). Being such a ‘top-level’ HQ has certain implications for attachment (think PPs, base capture ownership, etc..) but does not imply anything else. They “look” like command HQs when one looks at the attachment menu screen, because they are in the left-most position, like other command HQs. But this does not signify command status.
As Alfred says, the “only” way an HQ is identified as a “Command” HQ, for purposes of code adders, is if it has a “10” in the HQ-Type field. 4th Fleet and Southeast Area Fleet are both “2”, so they are not Command, but Naval HQs even though they are ‘top-level’.
The attachment as though they were command HQs is what I was getting at - I am well aware you can attach LCUs to any HQ. So the lack of command designation in the code must mean you do not get the benefits of a command HQ, as adarbrauner was guessing.
