100% manual targeting with LSH

note: to determine range, see post #458.

1. take bearing and range of target (target 1),start chrono:
2. plot on map (map 1);
3. take successive bearing/range (target 2) and plot on map until you are comfortable with course/speed (map 2);
4. I like to fire on a fixed bearing, in this case 350, so I use the protactor at bearing 350 which gives me range and AOB (map 3);
5. input all the data: bearing 10 to port (i.e. 350), AOB 75 STB, speed 5 knots, range 1,000 meters into the TDC (TDC 1);
6. keep the scope on bearing 350 and shoot as the target crosses the bearing, in this case 1 torp in the bow and 1 in the stern (target 3 and 4);
7. if the solution is good, payoff! (payday 1 and 2).
