Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello everybody, @ Bill Jurens, here the Bismarck ( GREEN dot ) correctly positioned on bearing 330°T at 15.042 meters ( 16.450 yards ) from the PoW at 06:00. I have re positioned closer to PoW the Prinz Eugen track and position at 06:00 ( BLUE dot ), so the Bismarck will result being correctly on t...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello everybody, @ Bill Jurens, at this point we have given everybody enough time to provide any value add on both the base map as well as on the table you have proposed.

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello everybody, just as Alberto Virtuani correctly stated, a Denmark Strait battle re-construction has already been done and published on 2005 by me, ... and so far nobody else has been able to do anything either better or different, ... demonstrating in this way my 2005 work to be obsolete or inco...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello everybody, @ Alberto Virtuani, I agree with your above reasoning. Once positioned on the Prinz Eugen starboard side sailing in line of battle with the German heavy cruiser, ... the Bismarck track will define more precisely both the Prinz Eugen track real distance from PoW as well as the BC1 le...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello everybody, @ Bill Jurens, here my input : Tab_Legs_V1_Bonomi_inputs_01.jpg The new Prinz Eugen position at 06:00 is based on the Bismarck position at 06:00 as showed on Rowell map and on the PoW gunnery plot, being at 16.450 yards = 15.042 meters on bearing 330°T from PoW. Bismarck cannot be o...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello everybody, Herr Nillson, the speed of the PoW I have utilized for this first map realization is coming from the Official Rowell map of the situation at 06:00 showing the track of the BC1 warships, ... and in there it is clearly written that both Hood and PoW were on course 300°T, ... so at the...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello everybody, @ Bill Jurens, here to current map correction for the Prinz Eugen at 14.900 meters from PoW at 06:00. AB_BJ_Prinz_Eugen_14900_meters_resized.jpg NOTE : in the future map evolution the Prinz Eugen track will come most likely even closer to the PoW one, based on the Bismarck track fut...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello everybody, @ Wadinga, please forget about the evaluations of the various Officers battle conduct on both sides. We have long discussed about it on other threads and it is not the case to restart it here in once again. As far as I am concerned I have no intention to restart that already done di...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello everybody, @ Wadinga, my posted messages are correct, it is the Admiralty log that does contain an error on one of them. Even if it is all correct as it is written, I cannot care less at this stage on this thread about David Mearns wreck finding process and the geographical positioning of the ...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello everybody, @ Jose' Rico, I am of the opinion that David Mearns did that " error " on purpose to try to " protect " in this way the real Hood sinking exact position and the current wreck location. This is the only reason why respecting this desire, ... I avoid to disclose the exact position tha...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello everybody, @ Jose' Rico, you are correct, 13° is the bearing and 21 are the sea miles from that given point GFVA, ... which was 63°North and 32° West.

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello everybody, @ Wadinga, during the last years I should have posted those 3 messages a dozen of times with the related source on several threads, ... if I remember well.
