Hi,

Technical Q for those in the know - how does that little display next to the periscope (in the F3 view, and in front of the one crewmember in the control room) work? The one that shows the depth of water in relation to the periscope. I ask, because it seems to be extraordinarily accurate. The normal way to measure depth is with a pressure sensitive instrument, but this one seems to be a bit too good.

Anyone?
