New Nathan Okun essay re Hood armor!

Well gentlemen - something new and interesting to peruse and discuss.

Go here - ... 0Tests.pdf

- for Nathan Okun's latest investigation into the armor protection scheme of HMS Hood. The document runs to 34 pages and, in certain respects, is an overview of the history of the contest between armor versus projectile. But Nathan takes a respectably deep dive into both the features and flaws of Hood's armor scheme and the expected performance of Bismarck's 380mm APC projectiles versus same. Well worth a close read, IMO.
