I have a student project underway on simulating a fire control table similar to the Dreyer one. I hope to get another one simulating one of the fire control computers described by Bromley in his paper on British Mechanical Gunnery Computers of World War II, .
The project has been slimmed down. The original was to create a Jutland game that would be fought with realistic gunnery control systems and with only the sort of noisy data that one would get from stereo rangefinders. I still think a game of that sort would be an interesting project.

You're preaching to the choir here, of course. I have some contacts that might be helpful in making this happen, but we've not found traction yet. The upcoming centennial of the pivotal battles should prove catalytic to this effort.

BTW: I think I just heard from someone related to you, or is William also you?
