USN Report on British WWII Ordnance

TallEng found this very useful link to a USN report on British WWII Ordnance so I thought I'd post it here as well

Thanks Keith  :thumbsup:

I'm curious about something: With most European nations using cylindrical/circular fins, the US using box-fins, and the Germans just using fins.  I'm curious if
  • The USAAF box-fins provided superior/inferior ballistic accuracy over the RAF counterpart
  • The USAAF box-fins provided superior/inferior manufacturing ease (on one hand you're taking four pieces of metal and welding them, but the other could be made with a huge slip-roll)
  • The USAAF box-fins were prone to failure at a rate higher than the RAF fins
  • [/LIST
That being said, I'd like to remind everybody in a manner reminiscent of the SNL bit on Julian Assange, that no matter how I die: It was murder (even if there was a suicide note or a video of me peacefully dying in my sleep); should I be framed for a criminal offense or disappear, you know to blame.
