Re: PoW's gunnery VS BSM's gunnery

Gentlemen, I have just had another look at Tarrent’s book on the KGV class ships and it appears that from the outset he was not particularly impressed with them in comparison with either Bismarck or Tirpitz particularly on a one on one fight. This is OT here, but Tarrant seems to have been overly i...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello everybody, now I think is possible to proceed with some analysis on the photos of the Bismarck taken after the NH 69727 ( taken at 06:05 and 30 seconds ). http://www.kbismarck.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=8335&start=30#p81231 When I wrote : Now my question to everybody is : how many photos d...

Re: PoW's gunnery VS BSM's gunnery

I a) Mr. Bonomi has postulated "A" as being correct. b) Nobody has postulated a suitable alternative. c) Mr. Bonomi's postulation, in Mr. Virtuani's words "...has to be considered correct." a) I postulate that, based on the measurements of the room temperature in my house, the innermost part of pla...

Re: PoW's gunnery VS BSM's gunnery

I propose to end the "discussion" on the DS battle map, which essentially is an ongoing clash of opinions without the possibility for any relevant outcome or conclusions of significance. Ending the discussion can only be achieved on a voluntary basis - e.g. not responding any more if the same old ch...

Re: PoW's gunnery VS BSM's gunnery

Mr. Speaker, this is my opinion: I hope this will be a closure to a historically completely irrelevant and at the same time impossible exercise: The attempt to prove that a reconstruction of the ship tracks in the DS battle is possible with an accuracy of (1) better than 30 seconds in time, (2) bett...

Re: If Bismarck had made it to France

If you can do better or prove what I did being incorrect, ... be my guest and go ahead, ... show us your competences. None of the two options above (do better or prove incorrectness) is possible. I'm happy to repeat: Because correctness (or accuracy) means you know the true story, and can measure y...

Re: If Bismarck had made it to France

I mean it is the most correct re-construction so far existing of the Denmark Strait battle. No it is not, or more correctly stated, we can not know if it is correct. It is the most elaborate one, but there is no way to measure or qualify its "correctness". Why is there no way to do so? Because corr...

Paul L wrote: "we all knew we were fighting to save the empire and the wealth which would help us.

Re: The Climate Change agenda

This basically is how the scam works. There is very little that is made public on these models, possibly deliberately so that the methodology can't be looked at and challenged. The recent missive from the IGPCC is full of exhortation and bluster, with no real science to back it up. Another case of ...

Re: If Bismarck had made it to France

Had Bismarck made it to France against all the above, Lutjens should have had his own "Trafalgar Square column" in Berlin (instead of the insinuations of " propagandists "). It's a (sad but logical) fact that history is always written by the winners and very few recognition go to the losers, even w...

Re: If Bismarck had made it to France

or at least to fairly admit that Antonio's proposal has been fully confirmed as the only credible one (http://www.kbismarck.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=8335&start=360#p81978). Nothing has been "confirmed", and in particular there is no "fully confirmed credible proposal". It still is an opinion. ...

Hi Mr.Jurens, you wrote: " One does not need to know what's true to establish what is probably, or at least possibly, false....." I (respectfully) totally disagree. Disagreeing with such a simple and fundamental statement, and calling it philosophical, compares with disagreeing to the fact that the...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

I might comment that one thing must not be forgotten: Any sudden change of course at high speed will throw off the gyrocompass - so the bearings (if any) taken after initiation of the hard turns should be taken very cautiously, or at least they should be assumed to be much more inaccurate then the b...
