When you sink a transport, is there any way to see what was lost? I'd love to know if the enemy lost air or ground units. Supplies or fuel would be interesting too.

I think that would somehow fall into the "pushing the envelope a bit" department on intelligence reports. Whatever sinks it isn't going to stick around and take prisoners for interrogation, and just counting heads in the water is an exercise in exaggeration. If you know TF so and so has a lot of troops on it, that usually is enough to cause an airstrike if you can reach it. Asking for the name, rank and serial number of the lost troops and the make, model number and size of the equipment might be a bit much, IMESHO.

In vanilla when a ship sinks it sez "such and such unit is being rescued"(provided other ships are nearby to pick some of the survivers up.)..IRL how would you know the exact component of the cargo you just destroyed?..Surely we might know if another enemy ship were radioing the info, but if it is a ship on its' own, I doubt the ability (or need) for good intel on this for maybe weeks?

A few cases of US Subs picking up a survivor with the express reason of finding this type of int, but I would suspect that it is beyond the scope.

I agree, you already get plenty of intel, more than enough. Somehow your pilots/Subs can read shoulder ID patches, and always get the ship name correct, never mind the class of ship.

If anything, there should be less, not more intelligence in this area.
