Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

This thread about the Court Martial attempt/threat was just dedicated to demonstrate that it happened, ... and we have accomplished this demonstration very evidently, even more than expected.

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

I do not need to insunuate anything, especially when utilizing as evidence an historian of the level of Stephen Roskill. Bye Antonio :D So now Roskill is the man of the hour...so hopefully you'll agree with the following from Roskill: All four ships opened fire at a range of about 25,000 yards betw...

@all: I have just received the material I have ordered to the Churchill Archive. A very expensive set of letters and files, covered by copyright. However, in order to close this very unfair novel invented by Kennedy to discredit Tovey, I can post here their content that relates to: Cag wrote: "...

Re: A 15" gunned Scharnhorst at North Cape

There is a further issue here - what if as well Bey had kept his five destroyers in close company and available to give torpedo attack support in any duel with DOY? Bey's destroyers were already struggling in the prevailing weather and they would have slowed Scharnhorst to a crawl if they had remai...

Re: A 15" gunned Scharnhorst at North Cape

If we replace all of Scharnhorst's historical 11in hits with 15in hits, then nothing changes. Additionally the proposed mods to fit 38cm guns to S&G would have increased their displacement, making them slower and probably worsening their already poor seakeeping qualities. There were heavy hits ...

Re: A 15" gunned Scharnhorst at North Cape

Standardising for impact velocity is somewhat problematic, and drawing conclusions for "equivalent ranges" without further adjustment is misleading. An impact velocity of 565m/s would imply a range of ~11km for the British 14" gun, but ~15km for the German 38cm and slightly less for ...

Re: A 15" gunned Scharnhorst at North Cape

The main gun-related problem the Germans had at North Cape was that it was 3 against 10; larger calibre would not have helped. That battle was rather one-sided for tactical rather than technical reasons. Starting with the Germans practicing Radar silence under conditions where that was a poor idea,...

Re: A 15" gunned Scharnhorst at North Cape

Gentlemen, At North Cape Scharnhorst was alone and surrounded by hostile forces and had her forward radar knocked out by a shell from Norfolk. If she had been armed with 3x15" turrets -as I believe was once proposed and had all her radars intact, would she have been able to put up an even bett...
