Bismarck lost her fore radar too.
PoW did NOT loose any gun permanently. Which gun ? I have provided to you this info already....
Only one (out of four) secondary HALA directors was put definitely out of action. We are speaking of the re-engagement, not of the disengagement....again mixing everything just to create....a mess.
Y turret was back in action after 10 am. Plenty of time to re-engage.....

No, chopping things allows to discuss, while your only purpose is (sadly) trolling and denying, creating a mixed "fruit salad".....
you wrote: "Gun A1 stopped after fifth salvo, gun A3 stopped after 11th salvo. So while all guns may have been nominally "available", their chronic unreliability in the first engagement would be the same in subsequent useage"
as you refer to the second engagement, despite these problems, PoW achieved in this occasion the same output efficiency as Bismarck did during the Denmark Strait battle, 85%

And it will be very funny to see how many times recently you have written wrong info, nonsense or, worse, intentionally false statements .....
