Re: Fuso V Queen Elizabeth

What we are finding out is that the head shape has a significant effect on penetration dynamics beyond such obvious factors such as mass and striking angle.

Re: Bismarck and her contemporaries

The poor outcome for the Germans had more to do with tactical command considerations, rather than with the performance of their gun crews or technical capabilities. see this Comment from Entwicklungsrichtlinien für Seezielgeschütze Entw.richttlinie SAri.JPG ..The Rw-Hw Geber was the German eqivilen...

Re: Battleship Vanguard Armor

The 14 inch belt armour was capable of withstand a 15 inch AP shell up to 15,000 yards.
this figure is only for the RN 15"/42 Mark I.

The SK 38 cm AP-round was able to penetrate the same amount of armor at about 25.000 yards. So the statement in red is something misleading

The US tended to use armor quality steel (ie armor) throughout the ship in many internal bulkheads and such. How do you count this? There is a position unknown The same pr...

0 means no data available Any analysis starts with zero. There is nothing supicios in a zero I try to work methodical. 1) collecting what data are available, where come they from, what is(not) included 2) check for differences what source is estimated to be the better one 3) complete data by estimat...
