Maciek is absolutely correct... The rudder control device in the sft torpedo roon is only a mechanical steering device. However, in the control room the rudder steering control device (BBC) is electrical only, and the 2 plane control devices (BBC) are electrical and there is a mechanical wheel. The steering control devices (BBC) in the tower and on the bridge are electrical only.

I have posted a URL that displays these devices in the control room of U-995. To see the photo click on the URL, and to increase the size of the photo click on the small photo to enlarge.
