Were Battlecruisers a doctrinal mistake?

It seems like they become obsolete the moment an opponent also has battlecruisers, since BC's aren't protected against their own guns. And they are too expensive to build and operate have enough for cruiser things, which relegates them into the very narrow role of fleet scout.

Maybe there's something I'm missing for the High Seas Fleet and Royal Navy were so enamored with the concept

>"Gee why would the largest maritime trading empire in history need ships designed to chase down and kill heavy cruisers and other surface raiders"

the Battle of the Falkland Islands was the ideal use of battlecruisers (aside from becoming surface raiders themselves)

later HMS Renown was able to cause the Graf Spee to sink herself from 2500 nm away without firing a shot
>>
>>43781002
>"Furthermore, the doctrine of a high rate of fire also led to the decision in 1913 to increase the supply of shells and cordite held on the British ships by 50%, for fear of running out of ammunition. When this exceeded the capacity of the ships' magazines, cordite was stored in insecure places."
Same issue that tanks have historically had. Russia and UK in WW2 were really bad about it, being so concerned with battle endurance and operational endurance they were willing to jam ammo(and other supplies) everywhere they could. Seems silly in retrospect, since we know that shooting more than a few main gun rounds in a sortie was a rare occurrence. This newfangled practice of only carrying the rounds in the armored carousel should have happened a long time ago.
>>
>>43781206
spare ammo capacity had more importance in tank combat, since they often needed to shoot at bunkers and buildings very often and would not have time to resupply when they had to keep the momentum of the attack going

so they had a constant drain on ammo that necessitated needing a large reserve, rather than consuming all their ammo in a single battle then going home

large ammo capacity was considered an important aspect of tank combat through much of the cold war, since they often stressed defence in depth, where they had to have ammo to fight directly after retreating to a further defensive line
>>
>>43780243
>Britsh battlecruiser
Big guns, good speed, bad armor
>German battlecruiser
Medium guns, ok speed, good armor

The Brits got their death ride of the battlecruisers becasue of how they handled the powder.

The concept itself became obsolete with the Queen Elizabeth class battleships, today known as fast battleships.

I'm considering a revolver for a carry option. And yes, I do understand the inherent limitations and drawbacks of such a thing. One mitigation of that I'm wondering about is the practicality of carrying an 8 shot revolver like the new .357 Ruger Redhawks. I understand that it will be a big, heavy gun. However, I have carried a full size 1911 before without too much trouble. Will lugging around such a revolver be much worse?

No gun /v/tard here, is the portrayal of revolvers as the heavy alternative to the pistol accurate?
What are the major reasons why people would take a revolver over a mag using pistol?
>>
>>43775990
Not him. But recently I read a very good post by a guy with a business degree. To sum it up, Sig and Kimber are businesses. So they start out with the customers best interest. Then they fall into money problems. Because its expensive to run any company. Especially one with added government taxes due to making firearms. Then along comes a new owner or man in charge. So cost cutting becomes the key goal. At the expense of the worker. Which trickles down to poor quality control. Then your left with modern day Sig and from what your saying, Kimber. Colt faced the same problem also. As well as firearms manufactured by Freedom Group

38 special worked wonderfully for pigs for decades and decades. It's a fine round.
>>
>>43782241

This.

Also the latest 9x19 wunderammo (147 HST, etc.) ballistically mirror the 158 LSWCHP +P.

Tiny difference is .38 does it with slightly heavier bullet at lower pressure with slightly less velocity.

Oh yeah its a lot cheaper (you can make it in your garage).

.38 Special, truly is Special. Best round of all time.

>>43782207

Yes and no. Revolvers commonly shoot a more powerful round than a Bottomfeeder, but there are bottomfeeder cartridges that are as powerful as some of the moderately powerful revolver cartridges. Revolvers do it cheaper, more reliably, and IME/IMO more accurately (practically at least).

Exactly - and you forgot 'making coffee for assholes sitting around theorycrafting shit that isn't happening for 30 years and almost certainly getting 99% of it wrong'.

Oh uh, that is getting the theorycrafting wrong. Not the making of the coffee.

>>43782187
>Not the making of the coffee.
If your a smart enlisted you only make coffee once, and make a total disaster. Leave the kraft half full and reuse the grounds so the coffee is watered down. Once the kraft is overflowing take it out and left the rest of the coffee brew and spill out of the machine while you "panic" and fake a screech like a red headed kid of drunk physicaly abusive parents that just split the last of the wine everywhere. Be sure to spill it all over the carpet and some non important manuals or instructions sheets. The make a vailiant attemp to catch teh rest of the brewing coffee with coffee cups instead of turning off the machine like someone with a clue. Blam! There you go you'll never have to make coffee again because you not good at it and no one is going to take the time to tech you when some fishing hole with legs can do it just fine.

They just dont get posted in here cos most kit build guns are better suited to other generals(FALs in brg for example, AK's in akg ect ect) but also becsuse of the bastardization of them in order to be legal guns makes them les interesting.

They get to sit at this council, but they do not attain the rank of master.
