Sorry for all these questions but I'm trying to get the facts straight.

So what you are saying is that the Farnsworth Ion gun devices were inferior to the later Hirsch units.
OK I'm assuming you got the facts from the Farnsworth team members, correct?

See, this is what I don't understand.

The website of Mr. Paul Schatzkin conflicts head on with what you are saying.

I was under the impression he also had interviewed some of the Farnsworth team.

So which historical account is correct?

Let me ask a more interesting question.
What does a Hirsch device gain by adding the Ion guns and its techniques from the Mark II, III?

Thanks for all the answers, this is very interesting stuff.
