Default AoB Calculator based on CapnScurys Realism Tutorial

Hi I am releasing my printable AoB calculator based on the excellent Tutorial and AoB Calculator by CapnScurvy http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/show....php?t=150069.

These can be printed out and laminated to make them stiff, or in my case printed onto transparencies and glued onto perspex or plastic.

Download is here:

Is-Was Calculator released 10/07/09

Ok have finally got around to completing a version based on the original Is-was Calculator, in a similar scheme to the AoB calculator in the first post.
Layers C and P have to be printed on Transparent material, A & B can be printed on Photopaper or similiar.

Can be downloaded from:

It's very nice, but what's the comparative advantage of this design over this replica of the historical tool here which includes a periscope overlay?

(in this picture the front and back sides are shown as separate entities, but normally they are all one - the back side is a speed omnimeter for solving speed using the collision course method)

Default Nicolas' Easy AoB mod

Nicolas' Easy AoB mod, see post in SH4 Mod Workshop, may eliminate all the paperwork. It is easy, simple and IT WORKS. I have successfully made shots of over 4,000 yds. at steep angles, and hit targets at night with poor visibility.

It has my vote for mod of the year. Once you can handle this mod, you have probably outgrown some of Rockin' Robbins and Werner Sobe's attack tutorials. See my posts under the Easy AoB mod by Nicolas.

Default AVG Warhawk's post

I believe you intended to say that you were going to sticky the Easy AoB mod, but your post was ambiguous, as it was in the thread re CptnScurvy. I think that is what you meant.

YOU WILL LOVE THE MOD. The SS Barbarinna is now dangerous!!

Good call re the sticky suggestion! This mod changes the game where it matters---sinking enemy ships.

Well, no, looking at this it can stay. Some might like using this and viewing the tutorial.

I need to look at the other thread you speak of.

Hi joegrundman, I don't know of any advantages this calculator has over the original Is-Was one used, As I haven't tried one yet - I Use CapnScurvys method that is linked in the top post but wanted one with more resolution than his posted one.
If you see my second post I am working on creating a replica Is-Was calculator not necessarily based on the original but to match the styling of the AoB Calculator.

Just to show the results of using Perspex - This will last indefenitly. (Maybe time to try one using Brass - Sweet)

I see, yes good luck with that. There is no doubt that the finished beast you have made is a beautiful thing

Functionally, they are identical. However, his has cool colors and your WWII (or shortly thereafter) model is lacking in that regard. However, Joe's appears to be waterproof and yours doesn't look sufficiently marine quality.

I'll go for the colors! It'll never get wet on a submarine, will it?

They are not actually functionally identical

They are if you don't look at the back side of yours! I never look at the back side myself.

There are some minor details on how you use the front side but they serve identical functions. Switching from one to the other would be painless and almost instinctive.

Default where can I buy one

how about sending me one of the AoB calculators?! The one on the desk was quite cool. If it were weatherbeaten, I would build a replica sub, put it in my pool, and use it on missions. I likes it.
