Where's the source data that says rate of fire should be faster? I read that battleship guns typically manage to fire 2+ round a minute in trials(was it 3 rounds a minute for the Bismark gun in trials?), but during combat generally fired a lot slower, less than 1 round a minute.

Washington fired slightly more than 1.5 rounds/minute at Kirishima

in theory, most WW2 battleships could fire 1.5-3 rounds per minute.

HMS Lion, HMS Tiger, SMS Derflinger, SMS Seydlitz, SMS Moltke.... and finally HMS Hood and KMS Bismark got ROF 2,1-2,8 shots per minute.

On practice... first engagement shots probably ll'be around 1 shot/min due fire correction issues... but that, hell brakes loose. Totally, IRL, I mean it!

Eyup. ROF was not close to the theoretical maximum for any warship.

depends 

 

with washington and south dakota they both had a 1.7 rate of fire when fighting kirishima

 

generally the first shots are ranging shots and at the ranges ww1 ships where firing at combined with the hitrates combined with their ammo supply per gun

yeah there were reasons why they waited to fire fast and corrected their shots

 

having a 3% hitrate while only firing at 1 rof with aimed salvos with only 90 rounds per gun and shooting at 2-2.5 rof very very quickly empties the magazines with even lower than 3% hitrate

its better to conserve ammo and fire slower than to empty it all in 45 minutes and have 0 rounds left while having a sub 2% hitrate

 

main problem is also running out of ammo before you have sunk the enemy ship is not really preferable

and with the 20-25km hitrates BBs were getting in 1940 that very much was a possibility
