Feet VS Yards!
 
It seems Epyx's Sub Battle Simulator uses Feet instead of Yards! :arrgh!: How does that effect the torpedo ranges? I'm really liking SBS under Defend Reloaded!

AOD's use meters, SHCE uses yards, SS2 yards as well. Up Periscope also uses yards! :arrgh!:

I fail to see the issue. Range doesn't change, just the measurement unit.


If I fill a pool with 20,000 gallons of water, or 80,000 quarts, it's still just as full.


I suspect you were just having some fun with this topic?

Multiplying nautical miles by 2025.37 will get you close enough to yards. And - of course - dividing yards by the same number gets NM.



Meters and yards are practically interchangeable for short distances


I measure all distances in sheppeys (about 7/8 of a mile, or the closest distance at which sheep remain picturesque.)
