Re: PoW's gunnery VS BSM's gunnery

Hello Paul Mercer, To remind you of the answer you received in September from Antonio Bonomi: @ Paul Mercer, it should be clear enough by now that the intentional lies written by Adm Tovey on his dispatches at point 19, I mean mainly the false 06:13 retreat time and the Y turret jamming event occurr...

Re: PoW's gunnery VS BSM's gunnery

Fellow Contributors, once established that the wrong photo captions are not written by Lagemann himself (leaving the unproductive above insinuations apart as everyone can go to Bundesarchiv), If only we could establish it...……..without being held to ransom. Clearly anyone who wants to know whether i...

Re: PoW's gunnery VS BSM's gunnery

Hello Fellow Contributors, In the meantime, can he please finally acknowledge what I already explained him several times ? As in the case of allotting any value whatsoever to the mathematical technique of the Tiresome Table (and variants) we must again agree to differ. Saying the photographs of Die ...

Re: PoW's gunnery VS BSM's gunnery

Fellow Contributors, so we have two errors here (Can Mr.Wadinga post the original photo with the photographer signed caption ? He is confused between a wrong archivist caption and Lagemann's...) I believe Mr Virtuani knows that the only person who can do that is his co-author who has been to the Bun...

Re: PoW's gunnery VS BSM's gunnery

Fellow Contributors, Sorry for responding to the dog whistle but, Although it is off subject it should be noted, very briefly that Busch: but when his reported distance of Suffolk never identifies "Suffolk", or a ten thousand ton cruiser, or a ship of any sort, but merely "a mast" at a distance wher...

Re: PoW's gunnery VS BSM's gunnery

Fellow Contributors, Strangely it has been said as proof of PoW's accuracy of gunnery when firing at the Bismarck that: ...except that a shell fragment, later identified as 14", was found on the deck of the German cruiser. I am not quite sure why hits on the other vessel this would prove the asserti...

Re: PoW's gunnery VS BSM's gunnery

Hello All, We have already established Conspiracy Theory and Revisionist can be accurately and rightly applied to the Controversial Theory being asserted as proven and correct. Tendentious: expressing or intending to promote a particular cause or point of view, especially a controversial one. There ...

Re: PoW's gunnery VS BSM's gunnery

Fellow Contributors, After specific admonition from the website owner, I leave the matter of the Tendentious Table. The reason for not hitting anymore after 6:00 is (IMHO) quite understandable: the avoiding maneuver around Hood remains surely affected gunnery as the ship heeled violently (even if he...

Re: PoW's gunnery VS BSM's gunnery

Esteemed Contributors, Once again this thread is burdened with repetition of the Tiresome Table, but at last its promoter begins to prevaricate about its manifest manipulation of mathmatics: All these "effective" figures are independent from any "assumption" except the battle duration Since the stat...

Re: PoW's gunnery VS BSM's gunnery

Hello Paul, would it not be logical to assume logical but uninformed by evidence. That is the problem with trying to derive complex theoretical conclusions from the crudest mathematical analysis, ie 10 is more than 8. Or dividing the number of shells fired by a guessed duration of firing. There are ...

Re: PoW's gunnery VS BSM's gunnery

Fellow Contributors, It has been said: no account (British or German) report any Bismarck fire interruption (or even variations in her RoF We only have details of the actual rate of fire for one vessel, Prince of Wales, and the extreme variability of rate of fire, 200% variation on inter salvo timin...

Re: PoW's gunnery VS BSM's gunnery

Fellow Contributors, Firstly an apology to Mr Virtuani. There was apparently no need to employ the practice of redaction since the second sentence did not contradict the first, according to our native German speaker. Also I am unclear how emphasising his relevant experience is at all "mocking" or in...

Re: PoW's gunnery VS BSM's gunnery

Fellow contributors, Deeply sorry, Jasper statement is unambiguous, PG firing continued during the turns. It sounds unambiguous until it is contradicted by the very next sentence which I would have expected to be redacted, so as to pretend his statement is really unambiguous. One must wonder whether...

Re: Target data

Hello Thorsten,

So given the accurate azimuth of the fixed baseline, plus two highly accurate measurements of azimuth from the ends, the remote positions of the ships were derived. Interesting.

All the best

Re: PoW's gunnery VS BSM's gunnery

Fellow Contributors, It has been said I agree we could get a better comparison if we had the salvo plot of the German ships, and this true, because we have no recorded times from Bismarck for the first salvo, no recorded time for the last and no evidence the German ships fired continuously because t...
