Maciek,

Thanks does your knowledge extend to reloads too? With the VIIc carrying 11 reloads internally forward how were these stowed 2 x 3 + 2 x 2 with one torp in the middle? or was there something else replacing the "12th torpedo space" so the second bank of reloads had 3 torpedoes one side and two the other.

Also any idea on reload time from each bank?

Theeafter were the tubes reloaded from the top down of replacements laterally or vertically i.e if spares 1 to 6 were in bank A and spares 7 to 11 were in bank B did they take 1 and 2 then 7 and 8 (for tubes 1 and 2) or did they take 1 to 4 then 7 to 10. I do appreciate with different types of torpedoes the answer may be self evident.

Do you know anything about the externally loaded torpedoes?

Regards

Richard
