(Drebbel): In the in-game footage I noticed one can select a section of a target, by clicking in the target ID book, to aim a torpedo at. I assume an unrealistic option like that is not available when using high realism setting, right?
(Devteam): You€re right! That selection and aiming mode will only be available (but not forced upon) players on lower levels of difficulty. On high realism settings, aiming at specific sections of a ship will be done by pointing the periscope crosshairs over them €" much like in real life.

Aiming at a specific section is a thing, to hit it another.

I'm a poor shooter, so I'd choose anyway the middle of the hull.

To be realistic, you will need to manually set torpedoes for fanshots to strike center, fore,and aft of targets per the specific instructions the Uboat Commanders Handbook.

Use 2,3, or 4 torpedo fan shots. Don't be a single torpedo firing cheater!!!!!

Who the H*LL says shooting 1 torpedo is cheating?
The problem with shooting only 1 is you don't know if it will be a dud or it won't be enough to do enough damage to sink the ship. But even shooting 3 or 4 torps and actually hitting with every one still has no guarantee that they'll all explode, but the chances are good that at least 1 or two should go off and do enough damage.
Just because someone doesn't do it like YOU would like doesn't make them a cheater!!http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v325/hauitsme/grimreaper.gif

Calm down, Revolver, it's okay. They said a long time ago there would be both auto and manual TDC. In the 'shakey-cam' movie they showed a screen that lets you tell the weapons officer which part of the target ship you want him to aim at, just by clicking on an icon. I assumed this was for the deck gun only, but apparently I assumed wrong. In either case they did say there would be a full manual mode.
