Default Kriegsmarine map system

Just wanted to know if we will have the Kriegsmarine map system in sh5 like what we had in sh3. Map doesn't look as good to me as the whole map view we had in sh3. Hope we have this if we play campaigns with other players so we know what sectors we are ordered to go in game of sh5. Please Devs I hope you have this in game!

The Grid system

The Kriegsmarine (WWII German Navy) employed a very simple yet clever system for quickly locating, reporting and most importantly vectoring its vessels (surface ships and U-boats). This was the so called Grid system. On this page you can see how it was designed and used.

Close up of Grid AE
In the example above Reykjavík, the capital of Iceland, is located in square AE 48 (the tiny red dot).
Left: Quadrant 56
Each smaller grid within the main quadrants (like the "56" inside AE) was then further broken down into smaller elements to enable the Kriegsmarine to use designations like AE 5619 (shaded grid).
Reykjavík, in the map above, is located in grid AE 4874.
The entire world was mapped like that, including areas that never saw any Kriegsmarine operations.

The Atlantic, Caribbean and Mediterranean shown in grid codes.
