gear Feet VS Yards!

It seems Epyx's Sub Battle Simulator uses Feet instead of Yards! How does that effect the torpedo ranges? I'm really liking SBS under Defend Reloaded!

AOD's use meters, SHCE uses yards, SS2 yards as well. Up Periscope also uses yards!

I fail to see the issue. Range doesn't change, just the measurement unit.


If I fill a pool with 20,000 gallons of water, or 80,000 quarts, it's still just as full.


I suspect you were just having some fun with this topic?

Multiplying nautical miles by 2025.37 will get you close enough to yards. And - of course - dividing yards by the same number gets NM.



Meters and yards are practically interchangeable for short distances


I measure all distances in sheppeys (about 7/8 of a mile, or the closest distance at which sheep remain picturesque.)
