I think that if the battlecruiser manages to keep distance using its superior speed, it would be very difficult for the germans to sink it. On the other hand if Graf Spee divides his ships so the Australia has to concentrate on targets from different bearings, he has a slight chance of closing dista...

German fire control

I think Jutland is the greatest CONVENTIONAL (ie: no aircraft carriers) naval battle of all times. This puts Midway and Leyte Gulf out of the discussion. Think of it: almost 60 battleships and battlecruisers fighting in the North Sea, two British battlecruisers lost with 3000 lives in a matter of mi...
