gear Fast 90 Attack tutorial for Wolfpack

Here is a tutorial I've made for setting up a "Fast 90 Attack" in Wolfpack.





Enjoy,
Jonny-Dog

I could not figure out how to insert an image to this post, so you have to download it at 4shared.




Enjoy,
Jonny-Dog
You can attach an image (or whatever small file) like shown in the image I just attached.

[edit: hmm quality is pretty bad though. I guess I didn't pay attention to image filesize and resolution]

Seems like the O'Kane method.
Took me months to get that down on SH4. I've had it mastered for years and now I have to study and practice all over again.
I love it!

Approach from 90 degrees. Set scope to 0, set 90 AOB (port or starboard), input speed, ignore range. Swivel scope until the gyro reads 0 and thats your shoot point. It's not hard.

The only difference with this game is that you can't actually see the gyro while in the scope. So you have to disable the TDC from the scope then move the heading dial on the TDC (which should really be labeled bearing) until you find the bearing that zero gyro is on, then re-slave it to the scope and put the scope on that bearing. Or just have the man on the TDC tell you when the you are on the zero gyro.

Maybe I didn't understand it right.

But once you know speed and course (aob), it should be as easy as aim with the attack periscope to the ship, place speed&aob in the TDC, and a estimated range (very rought one, by eye) and fire.

I don't see any advantage using this method. In fact it is very uncomfortable if you are targetting multiple ships which are sharing speed&heading

Could someone explain it further? Why is it better than classic method?

Thank you. Did not realize someone replied to my comment.
I have the Fast 90/O'kane method well in hand now for Wolfpack.
Very easy. It also has the added benefit of making it easier to gauge the convoy speed by using only one of the escorts. In my opinion, it is MUCH easier to identify an escort for my speed determination than it is to identify a merchant. Sometimes the merchants can be tricky when they are massed together and the masts and kingposts get jumbled together.
I've been sinking ships at will while surfaced by myself quite successfully with this method.

Never mind, just download the file from 4shared.
Ok, maybe this has to do with the level of our post-counts. Or that I made a donation for the annual Subsim Fundraiser. Never the less, the upload to an external site that you and Justaguyinnc did is a better solution. But it will eventually vanish I suspect. Free services don't have a long lifetime.
