I was playing with a friend, on the large Earth map made by Sandman (the same game as my forum post).
I surrounded his base with submarines and he had no subs, corvettes or anti-aircraft within range. When I made my subs visible via attacking some of his buildings, his artillery fixed defense building auto fired and damaged my submarine. Out of the roughly 10 turns down there picking on him, it fired a few times and the majority of the time did nothing.
However, we decided to test further after that and he had his artillery manually fire at both a visible sub and a submerged one. Which did no damage at all. I can't remember if fixed defenses could damage a submarine in the original, but if they can't then there is an error with the sentry setting as it auto-fired and did damage.
Sadly I have no files to attach for this, as it only auto-fired at my submarines a couple of times and at random moments, which I couldn't replicate. It just happened randomly.
