Re: Bismarck firing procedures at DS

Hello Alberto, He could not provide any alternative to the table, because any combination of the "made-up" figures will NOT change the conclusion (as someone who has tried already knows very well, proposing 96 as ordered shots number). Only denying 93 will.... 93 is the only non-made-up figure in yo...

Re: Bismarck firing procedures at DS

Hello Alecsandros, Visibility wasn't good, wind was blowing Bismarck's funnel and gun smoke towards the enemy , Rowell in his letter written during recuperation says visibility was "exceptional". 06:00 WX PG KTB Wind East force 3. A 28 knot battleship steering SW is leaving her smoke behind. Only wh...

Re: Bismarck firing procedures at DS

Hello Alecsandros, Duncan, the smoke is mentioned in PEs warlog as hindering visibility. Only when Prinz Eugen turned 90 degrees across Bismarck's bow, as not depicted in either the Gefechtskizze or Antonio's map, but as perfectly shown in the above photo. Jasper complained about the stack gasses on...

Re: Bismarck firing procedures at DS

Hello Alecsandros, Well you are back, aren't you? :D DO you understand what Seitenvorzündwerk is , how it works and how it doesn't ? Otherwise, your opinions are a decent into meaninglessness. You don't understand almost anything. Well I understand that it was Thorsten Wahl who explained Seitenvorzü...

Re: Bismarck firing procedures at DS

Hello Alecsandros, 93 shots in 14 minutes is what the official German records say (Adm Luetjens radio message to Group West, and Prinz Eugen's log), Half of this one sentence is relevant and half irrelevant. Jasper in Prinz Eugen was told to stop shooting at 06:09. What has that got to do with Schne...

Re: Bismarck firing procedures at DS

Hello Alecsandros, Welcome back to your own thread! Are you the same Alecsandros who posted: I read from survivor testimonies that Bismarck made course alterations during the initial stages of the battle of DS (5:53 - 6:00) in order to complicate Prince of Wales firing solution. Are there any indica...

Re: Bismarck firing procedures at DS

Hello Alberto, Thank you for confirming the irrelevance of averaging KG V's rate of fire on the 27th: where we averaged the rate of fire of a ship that ceased fire and re-opened fire several times: which was one of the examples of exploitation of statistical misdirection you used in comparison with ...

Re: Bismarck firing procedures at DS

Hello swpz, We need to start from the officially reported facts ( and for Germans Hood exploded at 06:00, as well as for British) Actually the original German typescript of the PG KTB, eventually posted on this very website, despite considerable lengthy obstruction and downright refusals by those wh...

Re: KGV and PoW GAR during Op. Rheinubung

Hello Alberto, Try and keep up will you. We finished with NH69731 ages ago. If the splashes are salvo 19 then that time is about right. Provided all the British logging is not falsified as there is no useful German logging. This photograph has nothing to do with the film which was shot some minutes ...

Re: KGV and PoW GAR during Op. Rheinubung

Hello Alberto, I'll explain what you mean- to you. You obviously don't mean the nonsense of the handrails being parallel to the horizon. They are also parallel to the deck, and if the deck isn't parallel to the horizon you are pitching hard in bad weather or sinking. What you mean is the handrails, ...

Hello Northcape, You make a very good point. Competent at colour schemes, but he has gone completely overboard since he decided to beat Cernuschi at his game of making up fantasies about Royal Navy conspiracies.

Re: Bismarck and Tirpitz a myth?

Hello Alecsandros,

Long time no see, welcome back.
AVKS of March 1941 gives 23 to 25 rpm for all 8 guns.
I presume this means reload time in seconds for each gun being c.20 seconds? So nearly 3 rounds per gun per minute. How often was this achieved?

All the best

Hello Antonio, for a competent person, ... having had it on his hands years ago, So what are you hiding? The Bundesarchiv website says it is the original caption, what do you know? If you have another caption why not show it? Have you been relying on nobody else laying their hands on it? If you have...
