This is from the Submarine Torpedo Fire Control Manual -- "ready in all respects" -- the tubes are flooded and the outer doors are open, ready to fire.
216. FLOOD (THE FORWARD)(THE AFTER)(TUBES NO._____)(ALL) TUBES:
An order from the Approach Officer, relayed by the Firing Key Operator to the Torpedo Tubes directing that the designated torpedo tubes be flooded from WRT Tank and be made ready to fire in all respects except for opening the outer doors.
217. OPEN THE OUTER DOORS:
An order from the Approach Officer, relayed by the Firing Key Operator to the Torpedo Tubes directing that the outer doors of tubes previously flooded be opened. The tubes should then be ready in all respects to fire.
