Then there's a Shotgun Combo Gauge (used to measure length of pull, drop at comb, angle of pitch and cast), the Boremaster (for measuring bore and choke dimensions, chamber length and diameter, forcing-cone length and dimensions and barrel-wall thickness), along with various fitted carrying cases and cleaning items.
This approach will make it possible to ensure motion with the increased angle of pitch and velocity in the initial stage, which will lead to the quick AUV moving in the vertical plane.
