It's not a bug it's a feature!

1.  Any surface ship can see a sub if you're right next to it.

2.  Surface ships can attack subs.  Depth charges and torpedoes.

3.  The harder AI may cheat by knowing about units it can't see (but
don't think this makes your subs worthless; they're still the best naval
dominance unit).

Actually #3 may be a bug.  But the AI is pretty worthless without it.
