on the useless manual (which i'm near to use in my bathroom for other purpose http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif) is written that maximum torpedo gyroangle is +-90 degrees and that late in the war it was +-135 degrees... how do i know this? and it depends by an enhanced TDC or by new torpedoes? anybody have a clue?

Has to be a feature of service pack 1 for the TDC.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif
The torpedoes are only programmed with a heading to follow.

You'll see it on the attack map. Switch to manual input and fiddle with the bearing knob.

I assume Type I and Type II torpedos are 90 deg and Everything newer is 135 degree?

I highly doubt that. The torpedoes have gyrocompasses for keeping their bearings. IT's common knowledge that (gyro)compasses show absolute bearings, and not relative such. It's the TDC that has to be able to compute a solution for a &gt;90 degree bearing.
