Looking at the submarine section, it says a fast-moving sub at periscope depth leaves a visible wake in Force 2 Sea Conditions.
Does that mean *only* in force 2? Or force 2 and below (that would be my guess)? Or force 2 and above?

That would apply to Force 2 and below. The sea surface is so glassy that the periscope feather would be prominent. Force 3 and above the periscope feather is lost in the surface wave action.
