Thanks. We gave them turrets in the game as you've probably seen, but it's been so long since I set up the Flanders batteries that when I saw TBR's photo, I was no longer sure I'd done it right .Here is a pic of "Tirpitz" showing it with turrets (Second row, second pic to the left)
How are the Brit and French batteries down there treating you? .Very cool pics, especially because I`m involved in heavy fights in Flanders.
It's hard to avoid them in the daylight. There's not much gap at all between the coverage of the Brit batteries at Dover and the French batteries at Calais.But once out in the channel I`ll try to avoid the coastal batteries at all costs, I`ve seen what mine have already done to British and French forces, don`t like the idea of being on the receiving end....
If my reading of the caption is correct, that's flak. I'd venture to guess it's tracer from 37mm Maxims, because rifle-caliber MG tracer wouldn't last that long I don't think. You don't see this sort of thing these days, because since WW2 the tracers of medium AAA rounds eventually burn into the exposive cavity and cause the round to self-destruct instead of falling back to earth. You can see this in the video of air attacks on Baghdad--tracer burst goes up and disappears, shortly followed by numerous small explosions in the sky. But I guess in WW1 they hadn't yet realized this was a good idea .edit: can someone tell what`s the big arcs in the night attack pics? Monitors shelling?
