IRL, allied subs sunk a large number of IJN subs (IJN subs sank 1 USN sub).

Will sub vs sub warfare rear its` ugly head in AE?

"Many" is very much an exaggeration, but yes.

The ratio heavily favors the Allies (teens to one). IIRC many of the IJN sub losses to Allied submarines were specific ambushes set up in response to SIGINT information so all those losses will simply not happen in any permutation of WitP. Given the IJNs experience levels the ratio is likely to go completely in the other direction in 1942.

Actual sub vs sub ratio was 16:2 for USN vs IJN
