Anybody with a ruler can verify course and speed, the whole distance covered by both ...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello everybody, @ Herr Nillson, now that I have posted the complete and readable map with the initial milestone, ... even in high scale in details, ... it is enough to measure. Mathematics and geometry ( bearings ) will allow to measure the correct distance between the PoW and the PG at 05:37 at th...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello everybody, @ Wadinga, Brooke surely saw the Bismarck after the first sighting, I have no problems about it. The 05:37 bearing was between PoW and Prinz Eugen, ... as it is more than obvious, ... and will remain as it is. At least it will on my map version for the moment, ... waiting further co...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello everybody, here you have the same map divided in 2 pieces, so everybody with a ruler in millimeters can check the distances on the tracks very easily. Starting_milestones_1cm_1000_meters_Prinz_Eugen.jpg Starting_milestones_1cm_1000_meters_PoW.jpg Bye Antonio

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello everybody, @ Herr Nillson, I see, and I think it can be easily resolved, ... and goes just in the direction of the teamwork improvement we can all make here in.

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello everybody, @ Herr Nillson, your understanding is absolutely correct, because I cannot pretend to have my 2005 work being already 100 % perfect. That was done just to eliminate the " reversed photo theory " of Mr. R. Winklareth and the goal has been accomplished. As I wrote above anything that ...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello everybody, @ Bill Jurens, the distance between Prinz Eugen and the PoW on the Gefecthskizze at 06:00 is around 20.000 meters ( so I assume Brinkmann wanted to reproduce the 19.700 meters he declared ) and it is of course totally wrong by more than 4.000 meters at least, ... but we know this ve...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello everybody, @ Bill Jurens, I see your points, so let me recap a bit for everybody benefit. Yes, I think that my Observation Set No 1 is almost correct and just needs some small adjustments to realize a reliable enough battlefield area we can start using as reference base. The 19.700 meters on t...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello everybody, @ Wadinga, the parameters we have agreed to merge the 2 PG and PoW tracks from their own maps realizing the battlefield are of course with the obvious tolerances anybody can easily understand and accept o this moment.

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello everybody, @ Bill Jurens, let me recap what has been agreed after some exchange of opinions on the 2 parameters we are using to merge the Prinz Eugen original map own track to the PoW one, while disregarding completely the view of the enemy tracks on both maps. First the 143°True bearing that ...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello everybody, @ Bill Jurens, you wrote : I think Antonio and Wadinga, at least, have agreed upon a specific example upon which we can work, which we might call Observation Set No. 1. One hopes that input from them, and various other contributors, will enable us to assign some sort of 'research va...
