Default Wolfpack Day Full Engagement - Videos

OK folks, videos of my historical methods for data collection for a day engagement, start to finish. Demonstrates the use of my Excel tool for my comprehensive tutorial, both of which are in my sig. Covers the 0 deg AOB method, along with several "checks" on enemy speed throughout (none of which includes the fixed-wire method).

Sound issues fixed, as well as the pixellated image.

Part I -
Part II -
Part III -

Just watched all the new vids Thanks!

Any chance of a day convoy with escorts using the const bearing method?

In part 1 did you mean to leave the line on something like the funnel structure to gauge if it comes closer or goes further around the next observation? That would be an appropriate means to verify the guestimated AOB. I'm not sure to what extent the real periscope has got stabilization mechanics internal, or whether that is just a gameplay trick. So like you could leave the line on the mast/funnel and it will always stay at that level. With a proper (prism) stadimeter mechnism this would be more reliable I guess.

Definitely need to be careful if that’s the case! I’ve done it on Hard but you need that much more separation from the convoy assuming an escort is on its beam. Certainly works there though and also allows you a bit of time to assess the overall distribution and behavior of the escorts. Overall I’m really too close for my own comfort in the videos (for instructional purposes only!).

I need me a crew though to present it to the public in a video - too many “spinning plates” to balance solo!

I agree - it’s a good idea to gauge the change in height as well during this. I didn’t in the video for all the multitasking/talking/juggling going on.

Stabilization I think is a gameplay trick. In reality we’d use the UZO and have hull-down ships, making it “easier” to eyeball range by seeing how the masts grow/shrink while knowing distance to horizon. The “length for range” trick is my way around that limitation which makes me feel not so bad about the stability of the scope. One of my next to-do items is to fashion a horizontal centiradian scale for the UZO to make rangefinding possible with that (probably on a transparency to hold up to the screen).

As far as stadimeter, the scopes we have in-game didn’t have this (or RAOBF either) to my knowledge, as the installation of binocular optics precluded the inclusion of this feature (if Hitman’s research is correct anyway). Split prism/RAOBF was an earlier feature discarded in later scopes like the fixed-height Standsehrohr, the trade off being binocular vision.

Another gr8 video series!
TYVM for taking the time to share this!
The one part I have trouble with you have answered that is, If I understand this correctly. after establishing target speed and bearing
get ahead of target by keeping him @ your 90 for the most part until you hit zero aob?

Thanks! To answer your question, more or less at 90/270 but judgement rules here - maneuver as necessary to keep at the limit of visibility while still having a good view of the target.
