Anyone out there current/former bridge crew for an RN surface ship?
We've all seen the generic American submarine movie, which is practically guaranteed to have a moment like
"CONN, SONAR! New contact, high speed screws bearing one one seven range 9500 and closing!"
I want to have a similar moment in the Royal Navy involving surface ships and radar. Is there an approved/commonly-used formula for this? And what would happen if the vessel fails to respond to a radio hail?
