A:

It looks like you're right. The question specifically asked about submarines in combat, and the Navy says its submarines don't have windows, unlike research submarines. Viewing outside the military submarine require using a periscope rather than windows. I believe Tamara's answer would apply once that correction is made. 

Thanks  for catching the mistake.
