Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

The fact that the bulkhead between XX and XIX had to be reinforced due to the water pressure at high speed however points to an open ripped compartment XX, not to a simple "leaking" from compartment XXI. >>>>> This is an unwarranted assumption. Once a ship was damaged and suffering flooding effects...

Re: President Trump: mid-term

Dunmunro, My response to you was because you did not have your facts straight (for whatever that's worth at this stage of the game). My last employment before retirement was with the international trade department of the Royal Bank of Scotland, handling the international commercial letter of credit ...

Re: President Trump: mid-term

1 - The budget deficit is completely different from the national debt.
2 - The budget was balanced during the Clinton administration years because, after the first mid-term election, the Republican party achieved control of both houses of congress and thereby controlled the budget process.

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

I am attempting to gently and politely point out two things - 1 - the fact that there is absolutely no primary source evidence that the projectile that struck Bismarck forward entered section XXI and exited via section XX. Not a single solitary survivor account, including those of personnel involved...

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

Hi Byron, which question is still unanswered ? Bye, Alberto As a matter of courtesy, I will repeat in a simpler fashion the points upon which I requested a response - 1 - Why are the portholes in the color scheme profile positioned behind those of the longitudinal profile? 2 - Is there any proof th...

Re: President Trump: mid-term

"We've seen the same pattern of massive deficit spending by the previous 3 Republican admins ..."

Which Republican administration was it that doubled the national debt of the United States in eight years?

Thank you for the prompt responses, but they really do not answer the questions raised.

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

Unless it can be clearly demonstrated that a re-painting of the false bow wave resulted in the pattern in its entirety being relocated aft, or the pattern being longitudinally shortened in such a manner as to move its forward edge to a position well aft of the original, the simple fact that the patt...

Re: President Trump: mid-term

The dependence of the US on massive deficit spending is frightening. When interest rates rise, as we know they will, then the proverbial s__t will hit the fan and it will be 2007 all over again. We've seen the same pattern of massive deficit spending by the previous 3 Republican admins, and there's...

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

Go here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jY-9BDJX45g 4:02 mark in video: Front edge of painted bow wave is situated forward of the fourth porthole on the starboard bow. With respect to your diagram, compare the porthole locations in the top longitudinal profile to those depicted in the color scheme...

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

What photo caption identifies the starboard exit hole of the projectile (or the projectile head) as being in compartment XX? I see none. In fact, one photo caption describes the exit hole as situated "just above the forward edge of the false bow wave", which places it in compartment XXI.

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

Before anyone gets too invested in using the "straddling ranges" from McMullen's salvo plot to calculate/extrapolate range rates, it will be very important to take into account: (a) the dispersion characteristics of the 14-in Mk VII versus range; and (b) salvo mean point of impact (MPI). Just becaus...

Re: President Trump: mid-term

Hi RF, My 2016 presidential vote was against the homicidal psychopath, Hillary Clinton; in other words, I took a chance on Trump because I believe Hillary Clinton to literally pose a threat to the survival of the American Republic. My 2020 presidential vote will be enthusiastically cast for Trump, w...
