This strangely reminds me of "gun kata" - the fictional martial art invented for the movie Equilibrium - that depended strongly on statistical probabilities of where an opponent would be shootable, or conversely not likely to shoot. It certainly seems that the idea that ships in this era relied solely on getting into positions where a 'broadside' could be fired is a gross oversimplification.
