Re: Prinz Eugen towing Bismarck?

IF Lutjens never detachted the Prinz Eugen, AND supossing it went scratchless from the attack from the Swordfish torpedo planes: could Prinz Eugen, in the middle of the Atlantic, somehow towed Bismarck to France?

No, in effect he designed a battleship armed with 305 mm guns, quite similar to the Dreadnought, and he proposed it to the Italian Royal Navy which refused because of economical problems, diffidence and so on...but they allow him to publish his idea on the Jane's in 1903.

Let's say he was the first to spread his ideas around.Expecially considering he called his article "La nave da guerra ideale per la Marina Britannica", the ideal battleship for British Royal Navy. Without doubt he wasn't the only one in the world who was considering this idea of the monoca...

Well, someone think it was, mostly because of their 380mm guns. But, apart the fact that the guns weren't the same but completely new ones, I found Bismarck and Scharnhorst classes construction in many aspects more similar to the battlecruisers of the Von Der Tann and expecially Lutzow class, then n...
