can the XXI plot solutions from depth with no parascope??

I'm sure this question has been asked and answered but the search function on the forum does not seem to work.

Supposedly, but since it was never used in combat, it is difficult to say exactly what its capabilities were.

Something tells me they would have had to aim their torps through periscope if they wanted to have any real success.

There has only been one torpedo fired in anger since the end of wwii, and that was in 1980, by a British Submarine in the Falklands War and that torpedo was aimed though a periscope.
