Electricity usage

Hi gents! I have been wondering how the usage of electronics onboard affected the ship. Did they need to use devices like radar carefully to save diesel? Was it common to keep devices turned off to save diesel? Could "everything" be turned on at the same time or was there not enough watts produced f...

Regarding general orders for atlantic operations

Hi everyone!

Can anyone explain this order, and why it was mandatory:
Accordingly, when Bismarck and Prinz Eugen attack a convoy, they must do so from opposite sides.

I read it here: http://www.kbismarck.com/general-orders.html

All the best,
Daniel

Re: PoW shell splash

Good day everyone!

After reading the discussion in this thread with interest, I have got a few new questions.
How high do you approximately calculate the splash to be?
Would a 15" shell splash look much different in size compared to the 14" in the photo?

Kind regards,
Daniel

Re: PoW shell splash

Thank you gentlemen, for the answers!
How very intimidating those splashes must have been. Enormous in size.

All the best!

Kind regards,

Battleship Command: Scharnhorst

Good day gentlemen! I am working on a simulation of a (fictional) Scharnhorst class ship. I'm doing as much research as I can on the class, and with my limited skills in 3d-programming trying to simulate it. Have a look at this video, and feel free to suggest features that I could add which would ma...

Re: Target data

Is there any gunnery manual similiar to the RN and USN posted earlier, but from the german ships available anywhere? I read somewhere that a few manuals was found on Prinz Eugen. Are they online? It seems Bismarck and Prinz Eugen had some similar equipment. From PE: http://www.shiparchive.com/ships/...

Re: Target data

Thank you for the links!
They are indeed interesting.

I find no reference to a computer/tool which would help estimate targets speed or heading.
So I assume it was done with pen, paper and a ruler, based on range and bearing of the target at different times.

Kind regards,
Daniel

Re: Target data

Thanks Thorsten!
This is very interesting data for my simulation.
Do you know what xx-Facher means?

If I understand correctly the atleast one of the ships are moving according to the first document, any info on how fast they were steaming?

Kind regards,

Re: Target data

Good day Bill! Thank you for your answer. Regarding own ships speed and course, would Bismarcks target computers automatically update the info from the "speedometer" and gyroscope? If hand cranked it would still be fairly easy data to collect. Range to target would be collected from the different st...
