When a spread of, say, four torpedoes is fired do they spread to the left or the right of the point of aim?

They spread around the point of aim with the point of aim at the middle.

The first torp heads at your point of aim (or left if you have an even number of torps in your spread), the next torp heads left (I think) then right then left and so on.

The problem being that the torpedos heading in the direction your ship is heading tend to hit at about the same place. Depeding on ship speed and spread angle etc...

But the point is that makes it kind of a useless thing for me.

I usually do it manualy with what is called a hose shot. You don't turn the scope, you just fire one torp after another as the ship passes.

Alternativly you can actually turn the scope as well.
