The original German sentence you quote translates correctly to "average salvo rate".
Thanks. That's what I suspected.

Prinz Eugen firing procedures at DS

It's time that we have a separate thread for Prinz Eugen because much of what A/A claims for Bismarck is being extrapolated from PE's war diary. What PE's war diary states: open fire 0555 ceasefire 0609 salvos fired 28 + unknown number average rnds per salvo is not stated distinction between 2, 4 an...

Re: Bismarck firing procedures at DS

Of course NO ARGUMENT countering the VERY "annoying table" that still stands as mathematics principles CANNOT BE DENIED by anybody and DEMONSTRATES that PoW effective RoF and effective number of shells per minute were in line with Bismarck ones , for the anger of all the deniers.

BTW, according to Jordan and Dumas, Richelieu was fitted with Type 284P4 in Nov 1943.

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: 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

to ~40250 tonnes (J&D p.186) J/D page 186 contains only the reference to 'her new 'normal' displacement of 43600 tonnes'. See my post of Sun Sep 23, 2018 1:45 pm for an explanation of "normal displacement" via a direct quote from G&D p.148. This is what J&D stated on page 186: In machinery trials c...

Re: KGV + PoW

The KM estimated Richelieu's standard displacement as 46750 tons (47500 tonnes) and after her USA refit Richelieu's displacement was 47721 tons (48500 tonnes). So Richelieu was 1000 tonnes above the KM estimate. The KM did not estimate Richelieu std. disp at 46750, but at 35160 tons, with intermedi...

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...

Re: KGV + PoW

The KM were able to inspect the plans for Richelieu, and the via German Armistice Commission were also able to inspect the ship itself. ... To state that KM understood in March 1941 (date of the report) what tonnage additions will be done to Richelieu in 1943 (when she was finally declared fit for ...
