Re: Fuel consumption figures for BBs
Another factor to keep in mind is that in a combat theater, a ship might have all boilers up and therefore fuel consumption high but only steam at less that full speed.
Are there books/articles with comparison of main propulsion plants efficiencies say South Dakota vs. Bismarck vs. KGV vs. Richelieu at various speeds?
