"Lion Target Enemy No.1, No.1 Ship, No.2 Ship, No.2 Elizabeth Target Enemy No.3 Ship!" Looking forward to this moment finally coming, maybe the main forces of Schell Ocean Fleet are not far apart, but Betty is confident to give his old rival a heavy blow in half an hour! "Raise the battle flag and fight for the Royal Navy!"

After suffering for the middle of the night, the Royal Navy finally found a place to vent their remaining energy and resentment to their opponents. Huang Chengcheng’s large and medium caliber artillery shells were pushed into the main guns and 4-inch sub-guns, and the capital ships fired according to their flagship orders!
In an instant, only the steam engine roared at the ocean, and in an instant, a strange variation was played, and the fire was raging and ferocious. On the other side of the dark night, the German fleet fell like raindrops and soon splashed with strange water columns.
The advantage of the British herringbone cross head is not obvious, but their numerical advantage is that the Germans can’t compete with the German capital ship. They didn’t choose to fire a deadly blow, but chose to make a worrying turn and turn around and accelerate into the sea fog area due north.
The terrible gun density of the British made this attempt temporarily futile. At 2: 57, the German ship No.3 was surrounded by four war patrols, and finally it could not support the British ammunition depot in the sixth round of shelling. It exploded and sank on the spot, but it was also the last swan song of this encounter. The main ships of Britain and Germany entered the sea fog area one after another, and the Luzov never appeared.
"The Germans will find them nearby and bite them!" When the ears were silent again, Betty sneered and reached a bloody strangulation order.
How dangerous is Scarborough Gerakl Strait?
Approaching the Strait from the middle of the North Sea, the main fleet has 20 battleships, and the night battle distance is less than 3 yards. Perhaps the first reconnaissance fleet has not responded yet. One 12-inch main gun, six-inch main guns and four 15-inch main guns are enough to tear the imperial patrol fleet to pieces!
Moreover, the trend of the convergence of the two British war patrol fleets can save Wang Haidi from recognizing that the emperor has a little care for him because he is a traveler. Even though the British Royal Princess War-weary has been hit hard, they still have a fast capital ship after all.
At 3: 03, the North Sea, as David Betty expected, the first reconnaissance fleet was moving at a high speed into the Scarborough Gerakl Strait.
The word "dogfight" is really intriguing … "After two naval battles, the building of Luzov’s No.1 floor looks somewhat scarred and feels that those armor blackened by smoke, those shocking knives and gouges, and those broken chains and cables present the most intuitive face to Wang Haidi to tell him what war is!
The sailors on duty were busy mending the damaged pipe while the gunners got together in twos and threes and whispered. Haidi sat on the spiral staircase of the bridge and extinguished the cigarette butts at the corners of her mouth with salty and wet sea fog.
Stretching out his frozen hand and stroking his patrol hull carefully, Haidi felt a little tired for no reason.
"Commander, you are not optimistic about the end of the naval battle?" Chief staff officer Singh Lyle wandered over and leaned against Wang Haidi to grab the military cap and asked
"I never doubt that the ocean fleet will fail without the staff officer." Wang Haidi glanced at the corner of his fleet and unconsciously hung up. "But this does not include the first reconnaissance fleet!"
Singler understood the commander’s subtext. He turned his head and looked at the fleet in the blackout. I don’t know how many people in the battle-hardened first reconnaissance fleet can escape the fate of soldiers and come to Lebanon as soon as they see it.
"Commander Ocean Fleet is in a hurry." The clerk of Luzov’s newspaper office came over in a hurry and looked dignified. "The fourth detachment of the second battleship was scouted by the British fast fleet Schleswig-Herstein, and the Silesia was hit hard!"
【 Although bad writing is not so bad, why do you persuade me to be a eunuch? Recently, it’s really hard to write a few words for a part-time afternoon shift at one o’clock and a late shift at nine o’clock. After finishing writing Jutland, I won’t write about watching the Olympic Games, sister paper and doing a part-time job …] The second gun Chapter 16 Card ()
At 2: 05, a terrible fleet in the sea area of 100 nautical miles from Jutland coastline, 5 nautical miles southwest of the central line of Ska Gerakl Strait in the North Sea, was just washed out from the dim light of the ocean in Golan Bay, Ziher on March 4, 1915, and immediately encountered a clump of white sea fog.
Embroidered with the iron cross, the black hawk, the German navy flag and the flagship flag of the ocean fleet, the top of the main mast of the battleship frederick the great clanked, and the cold wind carried by the high-speed driving came to my face. I went deep into the watchmen’s thick winter coat neckline and my hands and feet were cold. The watchmen’s observation platform rubbed my hands and feet hard to find a moment of warmth
Tired as maggots attached to bones, Schell lost his agility after moving his hands and feet, and climbed breathlessly to the bridge at the back end of the forecastle. He hid his slightly bloated body in the lee, and it took a long time to light his mouth. The cigarette smoke passed through his lungs, and romance and comfort had not yet spread far away in the east, but he fired a low gun. The audio and video was so hurt that the beast growled dully.
"East?" A little accident climbed Schell, carved with years and sea breeze, and his old face was just lit by a cigarette and then trampled on the deck by high boots. He would hold the gangway and rush towards the commander tower of the frederick the great, and at the same time, the overhead lookout would hastily raise his telescope to sweep the calm sea.
A few seconds before rushing into the sea fog, the lookout was surprised to find that there was a little fire a few kilometers away from the port side. Obviously, the graceful fire dance could not bring the lookout the slightest novelty, because it was always a steel background killing!
"Commander Tower, it is found on the port side that there are no more than five ships with a distance of more than 6 meters, and the ocean fleet is roughly parallel!"
Bombarding Takashi is like a sharp hammer hitting the lookout’s chest. It is a desperate feeling. Because the frederick the great has already drilled into the sea fog area, it can be seen everywhere that the thick water vapor will hold the commander tower and partially cover the thick hatch. Although it is difficult to breathe, the short instructions are still reached.
"Ask the fourth team about the situation! Inform the first reconnaissance fleet that the ocean fleet found that the British fast fleet ordered the first reconnaissance fleet to turn around and cooperate with the ocean fleet to attack on both sides! "
"Will that be the British fast fleet, where the god of war Heidi Selim struggled for nearly a night?" Neuer, deputy general staff officer of Ocean Fleet, has a face full of consternation. David Betty, who enjoys the same fame as Selim, is by no means a simple-minded and reckless man. How dare he challenge Ocean Fleet with 17 capital ships with only 10 thin-skinned capital ships!
Neuer, the deputy chief of staff of the fleet, was puzzled that Schell would rule it out or arbitrarily or decisively ordered it to continue. "Finally, the main fleet of the ocean fleet gradually launched the battle line formation!"
Considering that the British may appear in the direction of the northeast, Schell will reinforce his main fleet of the ocean fleet, seventeen formidable ships from left to right, the first battleship team, the second detachment, four Nassau-class, the first battleship team, the first detachment, four Helgolan-class third battleship team, and the fifth detachment, four Caesar-class ocean fleet flagship frederick the great. Fourth Battleship Team, Seventh Division, Four Kings-class, this sequence is arranged in turn. Each column is 1 meter apart. According to the convention, the flagship is always at the front of the battle line. However, in order to facilitate the cooperation of the same type of ships, Schell incorporated his flagship into the fifth division, while the second Battleship Team, the fourth division, three Prussian-class former warships, the fourth destroyer team, and a destroyer were given the right wing to cover the left wing. The old first patrol fleet, the third destroyer team, the whole fleet cruise formation, and the speed of one section entered the Ska Gerakl Strait
At 2: 05, even though the flagship Caesar of the third battleship was deep in the sea fog area, the terrible explosion on the east side went straight into the eardrum through the impenetrable sea fog, which was shocking.
"Is it the end of the fourth detachment or the end of the Royal Navy?" Major general kraft, deputy commander of the third battleship team, murmured
"Major General, Germany is not qualified to wait for the truth to come out before the rich British!" Hippel took a deep look at the narrow observation hole of the commander tower of the battleship Caesar, and firmly said, "Dogel sandbar error will not repeat the order that the seventh unit of the third battleship team advance at 22 knots, and the fifth unit advance at 2 knots, and gradually change the left rudder to 30 degrees to correct the course of 4 degrees north-east!"
The steering command was reported to the room, and the repetitive force drove the steering gear to start work. The huge hull of the tens of thousands of tons battleship drew a light dance circle on the North Sea and rushed in the direction of the final exchange of fire
At 3 o’clock, the commander tower of the battleship frederick the great was lit up, and the atmosphere was slightly dignified.
"The speed of the first team is 1 section and the speed of the second team is 16 sections. It takes at least 15 minutes to reorganize the team …" The chief staff officer opened the thick notes and sent out the dense data on the last page.
Neuer school also wanted to say something more, but the ugly confidential clerk in the newspaper office struggled to squeeze in without any fireworks, and the right-wing horror was fed back after the close combat.
"The fourth detachment of the Second Battleship Team encountered the Prussian-class battleship Schleswig-Herstein, a fast capital ship of the British fast fleet, which was exploded and sank by several British war patrol fire ammunition depots at around 2: 05! Three boilers of the same type ship Silesia were destroyed, but barely kept the steam out of the battle by sea fog. "
The standard displacement of the Brunswick-class reinforced Prussian-class battleship is 1,319 tons. It is equipped with two main guns with a diameter of 23 mm and 14 auxiliary guns with a single assembly of 17 mm. Due to the adoption of the most advanced water tube boiler at that time, the power of the Prussian-class battleship’s main engine is as high as 2 horsepower, and it can easily run for 19 knots. The strong ventilation conditions of Schleswig-Holstein can reach this speed. In terms of defense, the Prussian-class waterline belt’s main armor thickness can reach 24 mm, which has always been neglected. The defense armor of the main
The boiler of the last Prussian-class battleship Schleswig-Herstein, which started construction, has been further strengthened, and the strong ventilation conditions can even run out of the speed. Therefore, the Shih-Heung is not only the swan song of the Prussian-class battleship, but also the stern of Germany’s former fear of the ship. However, it is such a big guy who dominated the ship in the era of fear of the ship. In just a few minutes, he lost his soul because of the tragic explosion of the ammunition depot and was buried in the cold and barren muddy seabed in the North Sea.
Sleeping all night, Schell will glance at his deputy chief of staff with bloodshot eyes as if the crooked chair had been sitting for a long time, and repeat the annoying question repeatedly, "How far is the school ocean fleet from the first reconnaissance fleet?"
"About 34 nautical miles!" Wonderful stopped repeatedly interrupted deputy general staff officer has no qualms about commander-in-chief tightening eyebrows secretly heart slander a disgruntled replied.
The distance between the two fleets doesn’t seem to be getting closer. Scheer recovered those impetuous until he took out his pocket watch and realized the truth. The pointer just wandered around for a few laps. It took only three or five minutes to ask, but he was eager to show that his chief staff officer had a tendency to collapse.
"Young man, I have a hunch that I will live or die, glory or shame will be foggy after one night, and the answer will be revealed after the first light comes!"
Wang Haidi’s primary school brother is less than 34 years old. Neuer, deputy chief of staff of the Ocean Fleet, unconsciously scratches his head. This is the perfect time to encircle the British fast fleet. Neuer School will not sigh and sigh until the morning of the 4 th, when a ray of pure white light pierces the fog and opens the card …
The second gun Chapter 16 Card (9)
[To prepare for writing at the moment of dawn, it turns out that it needs more than 1,000 words to split into two chapters, but how to drop age of steam’s greatest battle line decisive battle is about to start a big era of blood boiling! 】
In the fog, the main force of the ocean fleet is carefully sorting out the formation, expecting the thunder to kill the right-wing arch-enemy. The British fast fleet knows nothing about the coming danger, but also carefully searches for nothingness in the fog. The so-called "First Reconnaissance Fleet" is approaching the seventh detachment with the cover of sea fog.
"Major General Moore sent a report that the German No.2 ship had drilled into the sea fog area and the World War II patrol fleet lost its shelling target!"
After sinking the No.3 ship, four fast capital ships of the World War II patrol fleet began to fire at the German No.2 ship, but the rangefinder had not yet bitten its opponent and the Germans had already drilled into the sea fog area
Just rising up, the high-pitched mood instantly languishes, and the blood and the rainbow momentum are gone. David Betty can’t help but clench his fist and smash the armor of the ten-inch thick commander tower of the Lion overnight.
"this damn sea fog!" After a few deep breaths, Betty forced herself to calm down and turned to his assistant Lampard and asked, "What’s the result of the deputy commander?"
"Tiger, unyielding, indomitable, three war patrol to the German No.2 ship fire hit the enemy No.2 ship; Four patrol ships of the World War II patrol fleet burst into flames and sank to the ammunition depot of the German No.3 fire target ship. "Lampard, the deputy commander, waved his arm and made a powerful gesture." Dogel’s Shazhou naval battle claimed to be unsinkable. After several months of patrol, the British Empire was shot and sank! "
"Wait, Major General, there seems to be something wrong with the other party!" The wine of victory is sweet, but Betty perceives Hamlet-style poison from Lampard’s smugness. After a moment’s hesitation, she wants to make a showdown with her enemy Heidi Selim for life. The idea of Dogel Shazhou’s fright is gradually fading, and Betty will encounter the so-called first reconnaissance fleet. Repeatedly playing it in her mind will soon find out the obscure clue "Did the Germans fight back?"
"German No.1 ship fought back, but the power of their main gun shells seems to be smaller than usual, but the power of their auxiliary guns is greatly enhanced." Major General Lampard is still immersed in the excitement of sinking another ship on a German patrol, and he is somewhat half-hearted. "Commander, the idea of German main gun shells has always been that light bombs have high initial velocity, so that shells with strong penetration and insufficient damage should also be intentional; After the naval battle in Shazhou, Dogel, almost all the capital ships in Germany returned to the shipyard for reconstruction, and it is unknown that the German patrol changed its main guns with stronger performance and larger caliber. Due to the problem of firing rate, turret half-gun shooting technology has become common, which may be the reason for the high firing rate. "
"No!" Betty replied firmly that her brow was almost frozen. "The No.1 ship is obviously the main gun of the Devlinger-class war patrol with a diameter of 35 mm. Even if the latest light bombs and large-caliber shells are adopted, the power will never stop there! In the firing rate, even if the turret is half-fired, the German firing rate should not reach nearly 24 main gun firing frequencies. Moreover, after each round of shelling of the Lion, the ranging tower has little correction on the engagement distance, but the angle correction is considerable, which means that the target ship’s speed can’t keep up with the fast fleet of 24 knots. "
Major-General Lampard graduated from Portsmouth Naval Academy as a poet, but he is also known as a veteran in naval warfare. Lampard quickly took out a pen and paper and re-converted the neglected correction angle.
"The speed of the German fleet has always been around!" Cold sweat instantly wet Major General Lampard’s chest and back. Shocked news blurted out, "So that’s not the first reconnaissance fleet!"
Lampard exclaimed to attract the attention of the busy fleet staff and department commanders of the Lion Patrol Command Tower. Everyone was in shock. David Betty, the arrogant Royal Navy, had a concise and effective instruction.
"Command fast fleet quickly out of combat right rudder 30 heading 4 degrees north-east correction each ship strictly enforce line silence and blackout speed forward! Notify Jellicoe that the fast fleet will encounter the northwest breakthrough of the main force of the ocean fleet, and it is possible to request the Ska Gerakl Strait to meet! "
Everyone knows that orders are kept and carried out, and they know that they are arrogant and provoke their opponents to shake their opponents.
"The ocean fleet is faster than expected. What about such a big fleet?" This is Betty’s doubt.
"The big fleet is still 20 nautical miles away from the Scarborough Gerakl Strait." The chief of staff of the big fleet told the truth that the fast fleet was facing a desperate situation and finally came to a cold conclusion. The chief of staff has tried to be cool and calm in front of the family, but the word "and" has inadvertently leaked that worry.
In March, 1915, the British Empire suffered a fiasco in Mudros Bay, and the despicable Turk’s cheap torpedo destroyed an export-oriented capital ship. Rao was the secretary of the navy Winston Churchill, the first secretary of the navy Wilson, and the resignation of the chief of staff of the two navies also calmed the anger of Londoners. Facing the army, he also suppressed the demonstrations and riots. However, just a few months later, the Conservative leader, the current Prime Minister Andrew Bona Law, tried to save the throne. On the night of March 3, he brazenly announced that the big fleet would take strong actions to save the passive situation on the 4th.
Prime Minister Andrew Bona-Law didn’t know that it was his resolute revenge that had fallen into a difficult situation of riding a tiger. He was highly expected that the fast fleet would only hit or sink a German patrol. Another result might be Nassau class and Helgolan class, which represented glory and fear of ships, or Brunswick class and Prussia class.
The Royal Princess was sunk and the War-weary was forced to withdraw from the battle background. This weak victory can neither save the British imperialists from questioning and cursing the big fleet, nor perfunctory the Prime Minister’s ardent expectation. When it passed, it was more than 2: 05, and a war patrol fast fleet accidentally "collided" with the main force of the ocean fleet, which almost coincided with Jellicoe’s last retreat.
It has become a luxury to keep a slight victory. Now the problem to think about is to lead the boys home!
The commander tower focuses on the gloomy face of the commander-in-chief of the big fleet and throws bitter glory or heavy responsibility to the admiral who has been criticized by them
"After the pursuit of the ocean fleet, before the interception of the West Lyme patrol fleet, and the fast fleet was on the German right wing, Betty was afraid that it would be difficult to break through the tight encirclement and get to the reception point of the Scar Gerakl Strait." The crowded commander tower of the battleship Duke of Jellicoe, who was sensible and steady for half a generation, gradually became cold and sharp, and everyone’s face swept through spicy words and kept popping out of his dry mouth.
Jellicoe will frankly make everyone feel ashamed. He is used to talking about the interests of the M-flag. They can choose the crossroads, but they are not polite to abandon their lofty aspirations. They should take responsibility and shirk their responsibilities neatly.
There is nothing critical about it. He chose to undertake it independently. More than 100 years ago, Horatio Nelson Trafalgar, the naval god of war, spent two hours deciding the final disposal, while Jutland, Jellicoe, reached the "Miqi Battle" in just 20 seconds, which was enough to change the historical decision. This may be the boldest and most incredible decision in his life, but the reward was the silence of the big fleet and the unpredictability of naval battles!
"Inform the fast fleet to move 5 nautical miles in the direction of 2 degrees south-west. We must get rid of the opponent’s big fleet as soon as possible!"
