Target Bearing or TB > (Schiffspeilung, Seitenwinkel, or omega ω) > the angle from the bow of the U-boat to the target (0° being the bow of the U-boat).

Angle on the Bow or AOB > (Lagenwinkel or gamma γ) > the angle from the target’s bow that their crew would see you (0° being the bow of the target ship).

Lead Angle > (Vorhaltewinkel or beta β) > the angle ahead of the target bearing that the torpedo or U-boat must run to intercept the target (also called the deflection angle).

Intercept Angle > (Schneidungswinkel or alpha α) > the angle between the target’s course and the torpedo’s track (also equal to 180° – Track Angle).

Track Angle > The angle at which the torpedo will intercept the target (0° being the bow of the target ship).

Own Speed > (U-bootgeschwindigkeit) > the speed of the U-boat in knots.

Target Course > (Gegnerkurs) > the true direction the target is traveling (0° being north)

Target Speed > (Gegnergeschwindigkeit or Vg) > the speed of the target in knots

Target Range > (Entfernung) > the distance to the target in meters.

Torpedo Speed > (Torpedogeschwindigkeit or Vt) > the speed of the torpedo in knots.

Firing Range > (Schußweite) > the distance the torpedo will travel to hit the target
