That is something I have noticed too...
Sometimes you can see the sub when it attacks. You still can't target it though.
It should be investigated as of when that happens.

Cheers

If the submarine person visioned purple and purple visioned you, you can see the submarines.

I knew there was something funny going on woth mousey. I  didn't know admins get vis from submarines. Maybe that privilege only belongs to one player.

so to clarify: in a hypothetical tvb scenario w/ 4 players & 1 watcher, if the watcher visions all to show start location there is some bug that makes the subs remain visible even after vision is removed from all ?

I don't think so but this is a known issue, basically the ability to see subs is transferable through shared vision.  You don't get to see more of the map or anything but if anyone the sub owner is vising is vising you, you can see them w/out tower or air.  Test it out!  see how many layers deep it will transfer :)

You can also hack map (so some units/buildings like flying mashine/towers can see them) in editor...
