Re: 10 moments that changed the course of the war at sea

Sorry, I sent the message before than I liked. 2: The British found that the German system of Ground Intercept integration was a wonder of complexity, accuracy and skill. But also, time and resource wasting and inefficient. Well, that is an opinion. The Germans could have said the same from the USAA...

I don´t see the need of ignorin...

Re: 10 moments that changed the course of the war at sea

Hello to all and best regards :D You are ignoring the antennae and ACTUAL performance showed a very different picture, or else why were Mosquitoes with half a generation earlier radars able to hunt the German Nightfighters ? The explanation is not only in the radar aerials, It is on the engines and ...

Re: Foreign warships in the 20th century USN

The IX 300 was the cruiser "Prinz Eugen"" and the DD939 was the German "Z-39", and the DD935 was the German Flottentorpedoboot "T-35". Finally, the DD934 was the Japanese destroyer "Hanatsuki".
Hope this helps :D

Re: Battleship Top Ten

... We can see that the final outcoming was to saturate of fire all the entire sky. No. There's a lot of firepower put out but it's a long way from "saturating the sky". Are we speaking of shell fragments? Or may be of quantity of shells flying around? Or of both? :?: In every case, it is becoming ...

Re: Battleship Top Ten

Hi to all :D The problem with the clock fuses is if they were set too early they prevented a contact detonation. I think we are mixing a bit various concepts. When an attack over a target in Germany (by example) was carried by “Heavies”, the “Freya”, “Mammut” and so other types of early warning and ...

Let´s We will see: I seem to recall reading that the Germans would have been almost as well off or maybe slightly better off in terms of damage by heavy flak if they didn't try to time their bursts and just used contact fuses. What? :shock: :?: Almost all the heavy Flak shells made by Germany late i...

Hello to all ¡¡ :D I have been thinking about some points discused. What dou You think about it? For instance the heavy bombers are bigger targets and flying in formations and not evading.
