I've converted the manual from PDF to docx which is Microsoft Word. I have also collected two of the post manuals provided by the members. This would be "A beginners manual for operating aircraft" and "How to draw ship superstructures". I have converted those to Docx. I believe I have added the first to the manual at the end and have provided a selection of gun data along with it. It isn't complete but it isn't that hard. I hope this helps all of you. We or I, can do more with this, if we choose. Download it and see what you think.

Many of the forum members have provided some excellent data for all of us. I can't begin to find them all so let's make this a team goal. Go find those pieces of information, put the link here and I will convert it to docx and include it in the zip file.
I have decided not to add more gun data, unless someone really needs certain gun calibers.
This is not just my project, it belongs to all of us. The idea behind the docx format is to allow all of us, the chance to add information to the manual concerning experience and information we have gleaned from the game and history. This is a living project, let's make it work for all of us.

I decided to capture the gun data images and place them in an XLSX file (excel spreadsheet). They are side by side, in order but I need to get the complete set. I am going to put together a spread sheet for large caliber, medium caliber and small caliber guns in one work book. I have uploaded the work book for all of you. The gun caliber's missing are the 19 inch and 17 inch. Those I haven't researched yet so I don't know.
Update: I have updated the work book to include a spreadsheet with medium caliber guns from 6 inch to 9 inch. I will have the small caliber done today, it will range from 2 inch to 5 inch. I will replace the current with it to save forum space. Check back.
Update: I have updated the work book to include a spreadsheet with small caliber guns from 2 to 5 inches. I will update the zip file now.
I think I am done with the docx project. I still need the gun data for the 17 inch and 17 inch guns, I am going to work on this. If any of you, I say again, want something added, just copy it and place it up here and I will add it. I need ideas for inclusion in this project. What would help you?

I've found the rate of fire information but I need to know what the column's mean. ROF is definitely rate of fire, but what does sw or mr mean. I also believe that the ROF's are not correct but without know it, I can't test it.
A misconception is the turrets. These are three gun turrets meaning that each gun can be elevated individually. Triple turrets cannot be elevated individually. We need rate of fire per gun, for the four gun turret types.
