I have to get back to this post.
I'm still puzzeling over the discrepancy of the German (0521-0532; 11 minutes) and British (0533-0538; 5 minutes) timing. How is it possible that there is a difference of 6 minutes in total and a delay of 12 minutes for the first turn but just a delay of 4 minutes for the turn back? Why are the German 11 minutes right but not the British 5 minutes?Antonio Bonomi wrote: ↑Mon Sep 28, 2015 12:03 pmHello everybody,
@ Herr Nilsson,
I see that you start realizing that the HMS Suffolk Strategical Plot by Ltnt Paton made on June 11th, 1941 does contain inaccuracies ( almost 15 sea miles is not acceptable ) and that its small scale do provide room for some easy alterations, ... like the German track.
In any case, since you are the only one currently responding on this matter trying to work on it to find a solution with me, ... please take the chance also to correct on Paton map the German track, ... both for speed as well as for the track they really run.
On the attachment here below you have the correct German run track in RED and the incorrect one traced by Paton in PURPLE.
Please remember and keep in account :
Too easy for me to tell you that once you have made all the corrections needed ... on speed, bearings and course, ... your final result will be really close to my initial provided map, ... but around 5/6 sea miles far away from " The Plot " position of Suffolk at 05.41.05.21 - Alter course to 170 degrees (PG)
05.32 - Alter course to 220 degrees (PG)
Just the amount of sea miles added by Pinchin on the battlefield enlargement ...
