The TDC is almost as impressive as the Arma Mk 1 fire
computers of the same era, used to calculate the problems of putting a
16 inch shell on the deck of a ship 20 miles away. PAMPANITO in the
Bay Area (Fisherman's Wharf) has completely restored working TDC, the
result of many many hours of work from a dedicated volunteer. It is up
in the control room, and very hard to see without appointment.
In 1986 or 87 I walked through her - usual tourist thing. About the
only thing I still remember was the story of the tons of gold brought
back in (that?) submarine.
