Anyone got any tips for range finding a target using manual TDC.
Even in moderate sea's i find it hard to keep the periscope centreline on the targets waterline.By the time i've put he upper line near the masts of the ship'the centreline has moved.

So any tips?

Thanx

Just wait until the boat pitch brings the center line back to the water line. Just as that happens then click the top line at the ships masts. It's all about timing.

Or use sonar if it's just unescorted merchants.

Use the arrow keys (+ Ctrl for fine adjustments) while looking through the scope. Makes it 10x easier to get a range.
