The world is divided in rectangles named with 2 letters. Each rectangle is divided in 81 quadrants. And each quadrant is divided in 81 small squares.

On your navigation map, you won't find the digits for the squares in a quadrant. In order to determine them, you have to use my GridXXXX mod (contained in the Alberich mod). First, select the proper scale : 125 km. Then, drag the grids from the upper side, and place the correct grid on your current quadrant. Then, read the digits of your square.

__How to give your position by using the german grid code__The world is divided in rectangles named with 2 letters. Each rectangle is divided in 81 quadrants. And each quadrant is divided in 81 small squares.

**To give your position**, you have to give the letters of the rectangle, the digits of the quadrant, and the digits of the small square where you are. A quadrant is divided in squares which have exactly the same digits as the quadrants have in a rectangle. Thus, on the graphic below, the location is : AE 561**5**.[Vous devez être inscrit et connecté pour voir ce lien]

You need to know :

- the ennemy course and speed (

- your position relative to the ennemy

- some basic mathematical skills

Your interception course will depend on your speed (

Now, how to determine your course ?

Let's remember the

This will allow you to find your interception course without to know where you will intercept the target. How ?

First by drawing a small triangle, proportional to the real one that you don't know for yet :

[Vous devez être inscrit et connecté pour voir ce lien]

Now, just draw a line from your submarine and parallel to j. According to the theorem, i/I = j/J, so j/i = J/I = x. So, this line will cut the ennemy route at the interception point, found with the speed S that you have chosen !

- Draw the ennemy course (blue line)

- Draw K (grey line)

- Draw a line from the ennemy and following his course, equal to i (if T = 10kts, then choose i = 10 km)

- Draw a circle from the end of i, which a radius equal to j (if you have chosen S = 14kts, then j = 14 km)

- Draw the angle (black) between j and K

- Draw the same angle (red) from your submarine : you find the interception point.

__2. How to plot an interception course__You need to know :

- the ennemy course and speed (

**T**)- your position relative to the ennemy

- some basic mathematical skills

**a. THEORY**Your interception course will depend on your speed (

**S**). Indeed, by dividing S by T : S/T =**x**, that means that you will travel a distance x time bigger than your ennemy. When intercepting him, that also means that he has travelled**I**kilometers, while you have travelled**J**= x.I kilometers, x depending on your speed. That's fundamental.[Vous devez être inscrit et connecté pour voir ce lien]

Now, how to determine your course ?

Let's remember the

**Thales' theorem**, also known as the**Intercept theorem**: 2 triangles which have their edges parallel, are similar (their respective edges are proportional). Example : ABC is similar to AXY, and AB/AX = AC/AY = BC/XY.[Vous devez être inscrit et connecté pour voir ce lien]

This will allow you to find your interception course without to know where you will intercept the target. How ?

First by drawing a small triangle, proportional to the real one that you don't know for yet :

**i**is a fictive distance travelled by the ennemy, after which he will find you on his route. From this fictive interception point, draw**j**(which is the distance travelled by you, so j = x.i) by drawing a circle with a radius equal to j, and which cuts the line which links you to the ennemy (**K**) : you found the 2 other edges of the triangle.[Vous devez être inscrit et connecté pour voir ce lien]

Now, just draw a line from your submarine and parallel to j. According to the theorem, i/I = j/J, so j/i = J/I = x. So, this line will cut the ennemy route at the interception point, found with the speed S that you have chosen !

**b. PRACTICE**- Draw the ennemy course (blue line)

- Draw K (grey line)

- Draw a line from the ennemy and following his course, equal to i (if T = 10kts, then choose i = 10 km)

- Draw a circle from the end of i, which a radius equal to j (if you have chosen S = 14kts, then j = 14 km)

- Draw the angle (black) between j and K

- Draw the same angle (red) from your submarine : you find the interception point.

**: you can choose whatever values for j and i, but j/i must equal S/T = x, that means j/S = i/T = whatever value you want (we chose 1 for our example : 10 kilometers for 10 knots, 14 km for 14 kts).**__Note__.

One knot = one nautical mile per hour.

One nautical mile = 1 852 meters, or 1,852 kilometers.

So

**3. How to calculate the distance travelled by a ship (in kilometers) which has a speed given in knots ?**One knot = one nautical mile per hour.

One nautical mile = 1 852 meters, or 1,852 kilometers.

So

**1 kt = 1,852 km/h**.So

**Distance (km) = speed (kts) x 1,852 x time (h)**.

Distance travelled by the submarine : I1 = v1.t1

Distance travelled by the ennemy (from your starting point) : I2 = v2.t2 + K

When you join the ennemy, you have travelled the same distance and during the same time : I1 = I2 = I and t1 = t2 = t

So : v1.t = v2.t + K so

[Vous devez être inscrit et connecté pour voir ce lien]

Distance travelled by the submarine : I1 = v1.t1

Distance travelled by the ennemy (from your starting point) : I2 = D - v2.t2

When you join the ennemy, you have travelled the same distance and during the same time : I1 = I2 = I and t1 = t2 = t

So : v1.t = D - v2.t so

In this game, you will have to shadow convoys, sometimes during several days. To allow you to do so without having a game stuck on TC = 8, here is the procedure :

- Close your game

- Go in

- Open

- Change the following value :

- Save the file

- Now, you can play the game !
