    Gary,

    the HR's must have been relatively expensive so probably they were only issued to submarines who could only afford to be on the surface for short times. "normal" ships would have used conventional techniques with F-Tafel that were cheaper and moreover, the merchant navy men manning the smaller ships had experience using the F-Tafel.

    Just my 2 c

    Ronald

    BTW, the rules i developed for the Flat Bygrave take care of the special cases so, if the German's had developed the same rules, there would have been no reason to ever use the F-Tafel.
