Coastal gunnery.

Memories of "A gun is situated on a clifftop at X feet high and has a muzzle velocity of X. What elevation of the gun would be required to hit a vessel X miles offshore?"

Why in God's name did they think we needed to know that?

There were tables for that sort of thing, and anyway I was in the air force.

Just pull the nose up a bit!
