Request from the Team: IJN Pre-War Directors

Recommended Posts

Do you need the technical specifications of fire-control mechanisms, or the procedure and practice of the crews using the fire control?

Well then I have some research to do. Hopefully my sources are different from yours, or I'll probably run into the same lack of information. I've only got information on torpedo controls, and it's limited at that.

Thanks! We have both (Friedman is really useful!), but they are still looking for more details about what came before. :)

 

Appreciate it, though!

 

>Friedman

it's Lacroix, actually :rolleyes: (and it means you already have operational procedures for all IJN CL/CA FC)

Damn, Lipstig! Where did you find all this? What a wealth of information!

In speaking with my dad who has the Library of Doom, he pulled out a surprisingly recent book

 

Kaigun

David C Evans, Mark R Peattie

Naval Institute Press

1997

 

It even has schematics apparently :-)

Here's another:

 

Japanese Cruisers of the Pacific War

Eric Lacroix, Linton Wells

Also NIP

Also 1997

 

Cruisers had fire control too! ;-)

 

Apparently this is even more detailed than the previous reference, but it is specific to cruisers as the title suggests

DYM;

 

For Kaigun, evidently it doesn't have the information they're seeking- they have a copy. :)

 

For Lacroix, a great resource, but still not quite the depth pre-war they are looking for.

 

Thank you, though!

If you're looking for enough detail to create mathematical models for simulations, I fear that what you want may only exist in Japanese. :(

Either that or throw the suggestion at the Japanese VB fan base, wherever that might be. They might not poke too many heads in here, given that it's an English forum and all.

I ran into the same problem when I tried to research it. I couldn't find any sources that weren't Japanese, and I couldn't read the Japanese sources very well.

Yeah, we're not quite done reaching out. :)

頑張ってください !

I didn't know you could speak Japanese, Yuri, but I wish them well too. I'll keep trying to find things on my end.
