This paper presents a computer simulation of the US Navy Turing bombe. The US Navy bombe, an improved version of the British Turing-Welchman bombe, was predominantly used to break German naval Enigma messages during World War II.By using simulations of a machine to break an example message it is shown how the US Navy Turing bombe could have been operated and how it would have looked when running.
