I think I would be 75 by the time I had read 4 years worth of threads :lol:
And by then, the conversations will continue to pile up :)
It will be like in the myth of Sysyphus

Why is British evidence wrong and German evidence taken as gospel?
It's not. For the answer to your questions, you're going to have to go through all the 4 years of debates here on Kbismarck.
OR, better still, just wait for the book.

Re: Bismarck firing procedures at DS

game is over because this troll is NAKED without any evidence. Full stop. IN that case game was over 3 years ago Alberto ! Nobody learned anything. The only GOOD thing is that you and Antonio exchanged ideas and hopefully will be able to publish them with time, based (in part ) on the discussions p...

Re: KGV + PoW

but weight gain was mitigated by reductions in the 20mm outfit. Radars were also added but obsolete radars had been removed. Again, weight increased but probably by less than 60 tons. It is unknown how much weight was added on Richelieu on various stages. What is known is full load in June 1940 and...

Re: Bismarck firing procedures at DS

*** I believe that P.O.W. turned away almost immediately after receiving several serious hits from Bismarck and Prinz Eugen in rapid succession, probably in the vicinity of 0603. Carefull reading of Capt Leach's explanation indicates that the decision to disengage was taken after Hood had been sunk...

Re: KGV + PoW

To quote myself: Quoting yourself doesn't explain the negative mass problem. Perhaps the French engineers of 1941-1943 managed to find a way to put things on Richelieu that made her lighter. Maybe inflatable balloos filled with helium gas beneath decks ? Same for British engineers of late-1943: the...

Re: Bismarck firing procedures at DS

So the matter was -- perhaps with some immediate embarrassment -- dropped. It was dropped because Bismarck was sunk. In any case, the problems with the 'conspiracy theory' do not really revolve around the details of mathematical analysis -- they are more closely related to, at least in my opinion, ...

Bismarck firing procedures at DS

@Alecsandros You know nothing about me, my life, what I'm knowing and what I'm thinking. IMO there is no nationalistic insinuation...but I'm willing to learn. So please explain to me what is nationalistic in your opinion or just stay silent. Who said anything about you in general ? I said that you ...

I see no nationalistic insinuation.
You don't see it because you don't want to see it.
Somehow that makes it worse.

Re: Anson and Tirpitz

Command is key IMHO. If Tirpitz keeps her radars switched off (as Scharnhorst did) , she will be caught with her pants down and broadsided at least 2 times before she could effectively respond with her batteries. In theory, Tirpitz should have been a more stable gun platform then Scharnhorst was. Al...

Re: KGV + PoW

These were impressive figures given an increase of almost 3000 tonnes in displacement and a hull which was found to be slightly bowed amidships - The increase of 3000 tons comes from the New York Yard refit. You forget again the values of weight added between June 1940 and July 1941, and in UK afte...

Re: KGV + PoW

The KM study, J&D and G&D are all consistent and but perhaps this is too hard for you to understand? It certainly seems so, so I'll have to leave you to it. You are mixing up tonnages because you don't know what you're doing. You don't understand basic arithmetics , intetionally misquote , and 'for...

to ~40250 tonnes (J&D p.186)
J/D page 186 contains only the reference to 'her new 'normal' displacement of 43600 tonnes'.

Re: KGV + PoW

You seem desperate to prove that a ship designed to far exceed the treaty limits (by KM admission, at least by 7000 tonnes) isn't really bigger than ships that tried to meet the treaty limit. :dance: You seem to lack basic arithmethic skills. A ship with a std. displacement of ~37800tons in June 19...
