Re: Speed - Bismarck versus Scharnhorst/Gneisenau

It follows from this, that for Bismarck at: 43000 tonnes, 138000 shp = 29 knots 48000 tonnes, 154000 shp = 29 knots 51000 tonnes, 163700 shp = 29 knots So how does the indisputable 28.4 knots, at 117400 shp, at a displacement of 48,000-49,000 metric tons fit in here? I wish it were indisputable, bu...

Sorry, Vic, we've posted almost at the same time. I didn't read this before my last posting.

However, this was a good decision.

Re: NH69722 - Battle? Or exercise in the Baltic?

Vic, not so fast.

:think:

Re: Fire control, salvo patterns, twin-gun turrets vs. triples

I've even seen a photo of Rodney (or Nelson) with the two outside guns raised in one turret and only the center gun in the next one. The older US ships had all gun...

Re: Two Photos

Thank you, Olaf!
