I was just wondering about the TDC in U-boats.

Was it simply a device which told the torpedo-room crew what settings to manually patch in to the torp, or was there some mechanism by which the TDC could update the torp in the tube?

Affirm the latter.

Thanks. I had this notion of technicians frantically opening tubes and adjusting the torps, then closing the tube and hitting the ready button. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
