Re: Ship buffs: Arado on Bismarck?

Hi Peter. I think you are right!

TIRPITZ had rails for the aircraft cradle from the main hangar to the catapult--as in the photo; BISMARCK did not and the plane movement was more difficult.
Thanks
Nick

Re: Ship buffs: Arado on Bismarck?

Nick, that settles it.


Further to Arados on Kriegsmarine warships, does anyone know this picture?


I think Scharnhorst (and Gneisenau?) had this type of crane.


I'm weary of the second aircraft, it is certainly a propaganda photograph. But I can't tell if it's a composite.
