Re: Bismarck firing procedures at DS

Hello everybody, Wadinga wrote: "There is no actual evidence Bismarck fired for 14 minutes, no evidence she fired 27 salvoes" Mr.Wadinga is free to add any value instead of 108 (he was not even able to understand that 27 is a calculated value, not an assumption , (27=108/4) and this alone demonstrat...

Re: Bismarck firing procedures at DS

Hello everybody, this is the smoke both from funnel and from guns, while Bismarck was firing at PoW retreating (on around the same course as when firing at Hood).....I have added big red arrows to help the poor guys to see something as they look really lost, possibly just a problem with glasses.... ...

Re: Gneisenau deck fittings

Hi Marc, thanks. I agree, the shape is similar, but they are at least 3 fore and 4 aft per side, almost perfectly aligned (at least aft)..... Also Scharnhorst has no one at all in these positions and I can't explain such a "big" difference in internal spaces arrangement.... :think: Scharnhorst_forec...

Hello everybody, Wadinga wrote: "You have generated your Tedious and Annoying Table with unproved assumptions" TOTALLY FALSE !

Gneisenau deck fittings

Hello everybody, looking at photos of Gneisenau, I have noticed, both on the quarterdeck and on the forecastle some structures that I can't understand. They look like boxes (or vents???). Gneisenau_forecastle.jpg AFAIK, Scharnhorst did not have these same "things" on the deck (at least in the photos...

Re: Bismarck firing procedures at DS

Hi Alec, of course it was, but, cornered by the evidences of the "sugar-coating", now the deniers feel compelled to debate anything previously established. It's just an additional demonstration (after the insults and the mocks) of their anger for the end of the fairy-tale invented by Tovey, accounte...

Re: Bismarck firing procedures at DS

Hello everybody, Of course I have never compared KGV's 2 hours engagement, just the first 20 minutes (from 8:53 till 9:13) with a RoF of 1.7 salvos per minute vs PoW 1.9 (see KGV GAR), but this guy is too ignorant and arrogant (blinded by the anger to have been defeated almost on everything he said)...

Re: KGV + PoW

Hi Alec, I think that the welding technique used for Bismarck and the absence of structural decks when armored ones were present (the armored decks in Bismarck play also a structural role, not sure about KGV, previous British ships did not used this ) helped Bismarck to be not so heavy for her size/...
