TRI #57: Torps and Bridge

Was a little worried my bridge wouldn’t fit, but it seems that won’t be a problem. Glad I build everything to real world scale (meters).

Roughed out how I think the torpedo launcher should work. I wanted it to largely automated with 12 preloaded torpedoes, with a belt fed system to keep the wheel loaded. The two inner rings rotate the torpedoes and also brace them against the outer two rings, which don’t rotate and are only there for support (no one wants to play 52 torpedo pickup, now do we?). It does happen to cut into the deck above it, but that is not a problem.
