Default Das Boot empty conning tower?

After installing the 1.5 ransomware (payware patch) I decided to download OM and try a German career, since I haven't been in the Kreigsmarine since I uninstalled SH3 10 years ago. First thing I noticed was the deck gun and damage control slots reversed - only two slots for DC and six for the deck gun? Then I saw that the conning tower had the same six slots as the US fleet boats but they were empty. I left them empty and ran the first patrol with nobody in the tower (real VII had all the detection and tracking electronics in the hull and there wasn't much space in the conning tower for anyone but the captain at the attack scope) with no problems.

So the question is what are you supposed to do with the conning tower slots, if anything? Do they serve any useful purpose?
