FIRING BOL's WITH MISSILES AND TORPEDOES IN FLEET COMMAND
After asking around various naval gaming forums for a long time and drawing a blank, I finally found out by pure accident and experiment how to do Bearing Only Launches!

Top pic- when your ship picks up radar emissions (purple ESM lines like the two shown) from invisible enemy ships, right-click your ship and select "Engage with Harpoon" (or whatever other antiship missile it's carrying), then move your cursor along any of the lines until the cursor changes to a crosshair icon as shown, then right-click to fire your Harpoon.
(You can then immediately fire more Harpoons down the same line or fire them down any other lines for good measure)

Bottom pic- the ship turns out to be a Boris Chilikin and is toasted as the Harpoon takes it bows-on..
(The procedure is exactly the same for when your ships passive sonar detects an invisible sub's engine noise, select "Engage with torpedo" and fire one or more down the bearing line when your icon changes to a crosshair.)

PS- a couple more tips for Fleet Command players-
If some hotkeys are not working, go into your computers Control Panel and select language "US English".
Also make sure your Caps lock and Num lock are OFF as they can mess up some hotkeys.
