Re: Fuel consumption figures for BBs
It would be interesting to compare fuel consumption curves at various speeds to see if the main propulsion plants varied in efficiency. I think Whitney who mentioned that German steam plants suffered from poorish efficiency despite high steam pressures and temps.
Are there books/articles with comparison of main propulsion plants efficiencies say South Dakota vs. Bismarck vs. KGV vs. Richelieu at various speeds?
