Re: Malvinas/Falklands war - Alleged attack on HMS Invincible

Enrique, some questions more:

1-How did you ensure that the bearing to the target were the same in radar and gun? I mean, how was the North (or what) assesed in both locations?
2-How many shells did you fire per night?
3-What was the total number of shells fired?

Regards

Re: Malvinas/Falklands war - Alleged attack on HMS Invincible

Well, firing only one gun at a moving target 10 miles away is a little shy to count hits. If you dug into old posts about fire control, you will see that 4 guns salvos is likely to be the absolute minimum in naval combat. Anyway, how far away from the ships were the shells landing? Were they more co...

Re: Malvinas/Falklands war - Alleged attack on HMS Invincible

That´s quit a feat...it should have been written to an article, a land-based gun firing at moving ships aimed with the data obtained from an off-site radar. How many guns composed the battery?

Re: Malvinas/Falklands war - Alleged attack on HMS Invincible

Thanks for the info Enrique, I have to congratulate you and your buddy for the inventive displayed. Back to the technicalities, did you get range and bearing from the radar? How was the target speed estimated? Were you passing corrections by fall of shot to the battery?

Second Encounter : When we used the radar to direct the fire of 155 mm against British Ships that were doing Naval Bombardment , this lasted several nights until they retailate and hit us back on the night of June 11 .- Enrique, I am curious about this. One of my primary areas of interest in naval ...

Re: Malvinas/Falklands war - Alleged attack on HMS Invincible

Hi Robert. Too many questions, many of which I don´t know the answer. Neverthless, I will try to answer some points. I don´t know the paper played by Nicanor Costa Mendez, the Foreign Minister, in the decision. I believe the planners had the perception that it would be very costly for the British to...

Re: Malvinas/Falklands war - Alleged attack on HMS Invincible

Hi guys: I want to clarify, BIM 5, the unit protecting Supper Hill, means the 5th Marines Batallion, based in Tierra del Fuego, the southermost portion of Argentina, and the best cold-trained troops deployed to the islands. As I remember, the only unit that stopped the English Army advance in its po...

Re: Malvinas/Falklands war - Alleged attack on HMS Invincible

Sorry to hear that....

I read too that just turning off the radar in the presence of the ARM-equipped aircraft disrupted the attack. Is that true?

Re: Malvinas/Falklands war - Alleged attack on HMS Invincible

Enrique, I remeber reading that the Argentine radars were attacked with Shrike ARM (anti-radiation missile). Is this true?

Kind regards
