We examine the spatial distribution and orbital pole correlations of satellites in a suite of zoom-in high-resolution dissipationless simulations of Miky Way (MW) sized haloes. We use the measured distribution to estimate the incidence of satellite configurations as flattened and as correlated in their orbital pole distribution as satellite system of the Milky Way. We confirm that this incidence is sensitive to the radial distribution of subhaloes and thereby to the processes that affect it, such…

The lowest mass subhaloes used in the figure should definitely be significantly affected by the artificial disruption
