Aerial Torpedo Attack
High Speed, High Altitude

Every once in a while, a previously unknown film comes out of the past that raises the curtain on a forgotten chapter of military history. This film does just that, illuminating the science of naval aerial torpedo attacks. Originally developed to educate pilots about newly developed torpedoes that could be dropped from higher (and therefore less vulnerable) altitudes and speeds, the film also gives a through grounding in torpedo attacks in general. You'll learn about depth setting, range estimation, target angles, leading the target, the effect of crosswinds, working with fighters and dive bombers during an attack, using radar, countering evasive ship maneuvers and much more. You'll also see how far we've come from an analog world where printed charts were cross referenced during combat. All in all, a very interesting and revealing film
