Ship-Dropped Depth Charges have an explosion that reaches out 800m. So your DD Depth Charge would have to explode 0.8km away from a Sub to deal damage to it.

Subs can dive up to 60m, I believe.

If the Sub is at "Maximum Depth" (which is a range of depth a sub can be at) then it cannot be "proxy spotted" by surface ships (and does not proxy spot Surface Ships either). Subs can proxy spot other subs while at Maximum Depth, though.

"Proxy-Spotting" is just a short-hand term for "Proximity Spotting"/"Assured Detection Range of 2km"

Spotting a ship for another ship is just called "spotting". We use the term "Spotting Damage" to tally damage that other ships have done based on the information provided by the spotting ship.

The only time I've ever heard "Proxy" used in relation to our game over my 3+ years of play was in reference to the 2km Assured Detection mechanic. There may be other uses, but I've not heard of them.

All other instances of spotting is just referred to as "Spotting".
