The gyro angle for the torpedos was set via gears (yellow arrows) and shafts via a hand crank below the gyro angle receiver (green arrow). The shooting solution was calcuulated using a "Torpedovorhalterechner" (torpedo data computer, red arrow). I also added the "Ausgleicharmaturen" (torpedo control panels, pink arrow), that were used to flood and vent the tubes. Via a angled adapter plate they were directly screwed onto the firing valves. The firing vales sat directly on the compressed air bottles. As a neat detail I added the hand crank, used to operate the muzzle doors and torpedo hatches, to the starboard torpedo hatch.
