Have the 4 points (I can't care less how anyone prefers to call them) been answered in any way ? No, they have not.Wadinga wrote: "Have the 4 facts now been demoted to mere evidences?"
1) They are isolated splashes (not 3 to 5 shells salvos fired every 30 seconds) in a 2+ minutes sequence (where are the PoW splashes of her 4 to 5 salvos (straddling and hitting BS) in the PG film (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPmkOtSveXY) if these two are from Hood ?),
2) It's obviously impossible that the splashes are from Hood after 06:01 (or even before according to another "theory"),
3) Bismarck is on a clearly steady westerly course (impossible before 6:00 due to range closure rate) until almost the end of the film (see her aft gun barrels and fore turrets shape showing her firing well aft of her beam) at the time of the splashes (download/file.php?id=3251) and
4) the first PG turn to starboard (around 06:04 on her battlemap http://www.hmshood.com/history/denmarks ... tlemap.gif) is well visible analyzing the start of the film (see an easy explanation here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=8491&start=435#p82759): at that time only local control was active on PoW and Hood had already gone since a while.
Any answer, at least to one single point, instead of mentioning second hands accounts and captions ?
Not yet ? Then, please, accept the fact that the above 4 points demonstrate, without any possible doubt, that the splashes are from PoW 14" shells fired under local control.
