I've just been looking at these pictures of Hipper class cruisers:
If you scroll down to the detail pic of Eugen's 'B' turret starboard side view (With the Flakvierling mounted). There's a compressed gas cylinder mounted near the turret ring. It's not visible in any of the other PE pics.
Can anyone shed any light into what this was for?
Warship design and construction, terminology, navigation, hydrodynamics, stability, armor schemes, damage control, etc.
