Default Most realistic optics?

I don't care about wide screen (I can do either), I don't care about fancy graphics, I'm looking for what would be the most realistic optics in SH3 that would compare to the real world submarines.

I'm going to re-install SH3, and perhaps go with one of the mega mods, not sure, but most importantly, I'm wondering what mod or which optics is realistic compared to what was really used in the U-Boats.

The reason I ask is that there are so many nice looking mods, but each has a different look. The OLC has that really cool vernier thing. Works great, but is this what they used?
Reading the help in Wolfpack led me to believe that they just used milliradians, and calculated the distance based on the angle.

So.. I'm thinking, all the mods that show a distance when you dial the vernier thing and pick the mast height.. are these wrong?

After playing the new Wolfpack game, I'm asking myself, how can I get this in SH3? Is this realistic?

I may use GWX, or even the newer WAC, but either way, I'm hoping to replicate what was really seen in the scopes and how they were used.

There are SOO MANY MODS lol.. How do I choose?
