Re: We are developers of a new naval sim and we need some help

Hans,

What are the system requirements for your game? I'm in need of a new PC and meine Frau said I could get one because she's sick of me complaining about my old one. Want to make sure I can run your game.

Merry Christmas to you & yours!

Re: We are developers of a new naval sim and we need some help

Hans, Do you know/have the film "Klar Schiff zum Gefecht (Topis-Melofilm/OKW, 1937)? I received the book "Jutland World War I's Greatest Naval Battle by Epkenhans, Hillmann & Nagler for my birthday and they mention that film. It was a propaganda film and they used German ships for some of the scenes...

Re: We are developers of a new naval sim and we need some help

Found some photos there. Tried to cut & paste the links but didn't work. Don't know if you've seen any of them. May be worth a look.

Did you have any luck checking this link?

I understand Russia recently returned many photos that were taken away after WWII.

Re: We are developers of a new naval sim and we need some help

Tommy,

Your posts have been among the most informative I have read. Bravo!

If I might ask, where would one look for more info on German FC. Anything in English?

Again, Well Done!

Re: We are developers of a new naval sim and we need some help

Tommy's post was superb. You might want to check out Historic Film Classics "Die Kriegsmarine". The first film is about life aboard Scharnhosrt & Gneisenau and shows the conning tower and helm. It was similar to Bismarck.

Re: Flooding magazines

I saw powder canisters on both USS Missouri & New Jersey. Did not the US keep them in the canisters till passed into the scuttle for hoisting up to the turrets?

Re: Senator Ted Cruz for US President?

I'm with Byron and Dave. I too was around when Reagan ran and he did save the the nation from the barry of the day. People can mock Ted Cruz as much as they want, but the real reason they go after him is they are afraid of him because he is articulate and he doesn't back down. I want a fighter! The ...

Re: Senator Ted Cruz for US President?

I am a Conservative. I was a lifelong Republican and I left the party after Romney's defeat in 12. I left because neither him nor McCain before him had the guts to take the gloves off with barry and meet him head on. I want a candidate that stands for something, as did Regan! I support Cruz because ...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

IMHO-Churchill was the one pushing CM for Leach because he turned away after Hood sank and PoW was being smacked around by BS & PE. W-W was not in position to engage. It was classic Winston pique and nothing more. The DS engagement was in the Germans favor and nothing the RN participants did was goi...

Re: British Fire-control and time of flight

Gents,

A very fascinating discussion. I am very interested in German FC of both WWI & II. Are there any works in English on the subject as well as photos? Any info appreciated.

Thanks!
