What are the sensor arcs for a submarine flank array sonar? Is there a blind spit in front and in back?

If there are blind spits, then using the CMANO 16 box sensor arcs, which arc boxs should be the blind spots?

Thanks

A late update for CMANO removed the visibility of the sensor arcs of flank arrays when looking at the map for some reason and it has not been reinstated since.

Previously, and I guess that the same must be the case by now as well, a flank array covered all tiles, each representing a sector of 22,5 degrees, except the two most uppermost, ie those straight forward of the bow of a boat, and the two most lowermost, i e those two being straight aft of a boat.


Here's a simple schematic to show the proper sensor arc of a flank array - a X means a box should be filled and a O means it should be left empty. NOTE: A . (Dot) is only there to make the representation possible since the forum software doesn't allow blank spaces at the beginning of rows, ie an X represents the array covering that 22,5 degree sector of a circle around a sub.

...OO...
..X..X..
.X....X.

Hope this answers your question.
