I believe the ASW mission behavior is by design. Sometimes it takes too long to identify the subsurface contact, and it is probably practical, at least in AI side of the game, just to shoot at it while not bothering to ID it. You just need to go to each new ASW mission and reset the doctrine for it. If you want inherited subsurface ROE, use Sea Control Patrol mission, not ASW patrol. This will however go chasing ships, but SeaCon does not override the subsurface ROE.
There may be quite a few of these actually. I recall CAP (AAW patrol mission type) will have radars ON in EMCON regardless of global EMCON.
Yeah not sure, I'm going to have to try with someone else's scenario. I don't recall them defaulting to weapons free but I could be wrong.
On the Nukes I just started the scenario and released nukes to the American units with no problem.

I was Navy, but Assigned TAD to the 24th MAU Hq in Beirut. By far the finest period of my service!
