Bismarck Paint storage

Looking at this picture I asked myself how much paint was storaged in the Bismarck and where? Was the paint inside a big tank like the fuel-oil, or buckets were stored inside a room below decks? Any idea?

Re: No return to the Moon

Minoru, I generally find your comments to be thoughtful and interesting, especially considering that your cultural background provides me with an alternative perspective. Your post here expressed a valid opinion, but your first sentence does you no credit. I know Karl is not a troll, but the tone h...

Re: Theoretical WW2 tank engagements

In the open field, like North Africa or the Russian plains, the King Tiger has no rival. Too much armor and an excellent and accurate gun.

Re: Reasons why Germany didn't win the war

For me one the main reasons Germany lost the war was that all her planning was improvised and dictated by the circunstances as the war went on. In September 1939 there wasn't a general estrategic plan on how to conduct a war. The only thing planned was the invasion of Poland. The campaing in the wes...

Re: Revisionist tendencies and Ambrose Sindrome

mkenny, The problem with you is that you contradict yourself. When someone attributes the German defeat to Hitler, numerical inferiority, being outnumbered most of the time, and such things, you don't waste a second to accuse others of giving "German fan-boy excuses". Yet, when you were as...

Re: Revisionist tendencies and Ambrose Sindrome

Yes, without the Soviet help they wouldn't have conquered Poland. The fact is that 2 Armies invaded Poland not one. Thus Germany did not defeat Poland on her own..... Nor did she occupy all of France in 1940............ Never defeated Britain............ Failed in Russia....... It seems that though...

Re: Revisionist tendencies and Ambrose Sindrome

Yes, mkenny could you please be so kind and let us know what do you think was the main cause/causes behind the German defeat? Why? Is there some policy that any question asked MUST be answered? I am not one for 'what if's' They rarely produce anything constructive and in my experience the one posin...

Re: Revisionist tendencies and Ambrose Sindrome

Here we go again. Those claiming impartiality keep trying to show the object of their admiration only lost because everyone else ganged up on them. .....
