Re: a "Let\'s argue" thread

WWII, B17, FW190 at 3 and 9 o'clock position at 600 meters. Waist gunners egage at same time, their correction for lead only. Bomber speed is 200 kts, altitude 19000 ft. Waist guns are Browning M2(RH Twist 1:16) with standard ball and APIT mix. Guns are range zeroed(static) at 600 meters.

Is Hermann scared? How about Hans? If not, what would correction factor be? [img]images/icons/confused.gif[/img]

Have fun! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Gee guys, I didn't mean to scare y'all away? [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] Len, if you have "THE BOOK" by now don't think your cheatin by speakin up. The numbers are a bit different. Approximations are okay,"round 'bout" or "there 'bouts" acceptable too. [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

Hint: it's an aerodynamic jump question.

Max,
If they corrected for lead only then Hans and Herman are safe if I remember correctly and those gunners better get there "stuff" together. Whew, I'm still safe... I didn't cuss.
The left gunner will hit high and the right gunner will hit low due to bullet precession due to the 200knot "crosswind". I think that is the term. I don't remember the actual calculations to give you the exact numbers for lead and drift, I only try to remember concepts. Then I can go back and look up details if needed.

Steve

Yessiree Steve! Near abouts 8' high on the left side and 8' low on the right. Of course that's only a wag. I don't have my calculator handy. Reverse the twist, reverse the elevation correction. See how easy that is? [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Re: a "Let\'s argue" thread

A kid I once knew asked me if the fastest land animal running at 60-70 miles an hour would be able to out run a speeding rifle bullet if it was runnding the opposite direction. I think it could out run the bullet going about 2000 mph. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] Shaky, I know what you mean about not finding cloths. I'm about 6-4" and I need to go everywhere to find pants that fit.
