Default Firing Torpedoes From The Attack Map F6.

Firing Torpedoes From The Attack Map F6.

The Target remains Locked in the Periscope Station.
The > 2 Gyro Angle Dials are used to monitor when to Fire Torpedoes.

Picture 1 > Here the Gyro Angle 000 has been replaced by > 2 Lead Angle Dials.
Left Dial > U-Boat.
Right Dial > Target.
The perfect firing solution is when both Dials are vertical as in the Picture.
The U-Boat is correctly positioned for a 90ᵒ shoot as you can see the Torpedo Track Line runs down the 0ᵒ bearing.
All the calculations have been done by the Weapons Officer (WE) using the > Torpedo Solutions Icon.

Picture 3 > Target destroyed.
