"Are military Subs required to"
That would depend on the exact operational orders and regs that they were under at the specific time, for the specific vessel. It is conceivable that you eould NOT want the sub to respond, i.e., suppose the "civilian" was an Elbonian naval crew in disguise, trying to lure up the sub while it was en route to launch a cruise missile attack on Elbonia?
