A few questions about the design of hull on the "Admiral Hip

Re: Armor of the Admiral Hipper class cruisers

Unterlagen zur Bestimmung der Hauptkampfentfernung did not mention other belt thicknes then 80mm. Hi, Thorsten and all... I looked up "Unterlagen zur Bestimmung ..." There is one question: could the German gunners did not take into account the small areas of armor with a thickness that is...

Yes of course ...

I'm sorry... :oops:
It's "homebrew" scheme of the armor belts "Hipper"-class cruisers.

Re: Armor of the Admiral Hipper class cruisers

Hi all, Now to ship models....this feature IS depicted on the hull of the Tamiya 1/700 Prinz Eugen...but is missing from the Trumpeter 1/700 Hipper and the Airfix 1/600 Prinz. It's not absolutely perfect, but congratulations to Tamiya for recognizing and depicting that detail! As for me ... :D This...

Re: Armor of the Admiral Hipper class cruisers
