Annex A
Leander First GroupOFFICIAL Change MkVII 6 inch guns to MkXXIII 6 inch guns.

F4F-7 WildcatOFFICIAL Change the Damage Value from 6 to 8.
F4U-1D CorsairOFFICIAL Change the Damage Value from 6 to 8.
Annex E1
OFFICIALBecause of the poor design of British submarine fire control systems, although they can fire the Mk8 torpedo, they cannot set it with any gyro angle off dead ahead. The Mk8 was capable of accepting such settings, but the fire control systems were incapable of setting the weapon. This applies to all WWII British submarines.
OFFICIALThe US Mk14's range/speed settings are mixed up. The correct values are 5000 yards at 46 knots and 9800 yards at 32 knots.
