Hello everybody, Byron Angel wrote: "It appears in the photo under discussion that, while Bismarck is engaging a target off her port bow with three of her main battery turrets, turret Anton remains trained fore and aft" Both turrets are trained in exactly the same way (see their shapes): nh69729_tur...

Re: A correct attribution for the "Flash Effect" photo?

Hello everybody, Mr.Wadinga found an apparent Antonio's "contradiction" ... from... 2006 :clap: .... No need to go back to 2006 to find his contradictions/errors (http://www.kbismarck.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=8526#p82783, http://www.kbismarck.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=6728&start=2250).

Re: A correct attribution for the "Flash Effect" photo?

Hello everybody, Wadinga wrote: "Once again inverted faulty logic where the evidence clearly available in the photographs, and from which conjectural tracks might be deduced, is to be ignored." No, just (once again) absolutely unfounded conclusions: Mr. Wadinga assumes the photos show a 90° intercep...

Hello everybody, Wadinga wrote: "Thank you for this photograph which neatly proves my point." Instead of admitting he was simply wrong, Mr.Wadinga insists. In the "flash effect photo": he can determine neither the exact orientation not the exact elevation of the centre (not the aft one....) 105mm mo...

Re: A correct attribution for the "Flash Effect" photo?

Hello everybody, as noted by Northcape the question was to Mr.Jurens.... Northcape wrote: " all reconstructions are equally inaccurate." Respectfully, I totally disagree with this statement, because Mr.Jurens has published a battlemap that "comes" to exactly the same conclusions than Antonio's one (...

Re: A correct attribution for the "Flash Effect" photo?

Thanks again, Mr.Jurens, for your answer, however, you have not yet answered the question n.2 (http://www.kbismarck.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=8756&p=85197#p85189), therefore re-phrased here below: a) Based on your own battlemap (http://www.kbismarck.org/forum/download/file.php?id=3593) and assum...

Re: A correct attribution for the "Flash Effect" photo?

Hello everybody, thanks to MrJurens for the answers to my 3 questions. My observations: 1) Not being sure of the authenticity of a photo, a disclaimer should have been added (or at least a general disclaimer for all the battle images should have been written somewhere). The caption at pag. 228 is un...

Re: A correct attribution for the "Flash Effect" photo?

Hello everybody, Wadinga wrote (quoting me) : " " A good step forward" would be to admit the barrels are parallel to the horizon" I easily admit they are almost (around 3°difference are present, to be very precise). However, you don't know their elevation ....because you cannot know whether they wer...
