One of the solutions provided by this calculator was the Torpedo Track Angle, the gyro    angle to be applied to the torpedoes. This angle was relative to the direction the bow          would be facing when the fish was fired.

The advantage of this was that the bow didn't necessarily have to be pointed towards the             target.

During the attack, estimated target speed, course and range were fed into a mechanical     angle solver ("fruit machine") which was also provided with the submarine's gyro heading.

Torpedo spread was achieved by maintaining a steady course (of the submarine) and         varying the gyro angle firing interval (time between firing) for each fish.
