many thanks for the clarification: I will try to better fit Jasper account and salvo count based on this.
One more question: does the German text specifies whether the PG fore turrets were not bearing (thus not firing) or just trained max aft (but still in action, as the English translation does not exclude) when Jasper transferred direction to Albrecht ? Still I feel that, even accounting for 28 salvos (either partial or full), there will be too many shots to be fired after 6:04 by just 2 turrets before cease fire.
Thanks a lot (as usual).
