One was or another , a lot of this forum's time will be spent on Ship classes, weapons systems, Units and commanders that had a real or perceived major impact on historiy and historical struggles.
This thread will cover many miles if all.
The King George V Class of battleships included the "Prince of Wales and The "King George V"
Prince of Wales was a ship whose days were numbered. Her Guns were first fired in anger against the redoubtable Bismarck and her consort Prinz Eugen.
To the best of my knowlegde, she scored a 14" hit against Bismarck's forward fuel tank, enabling her to be tracked much more easily.
Prince of Wales left port to confront Bismarck will her ship builders still on board. It was battered quickly and Hood was Blown up.
Hood was a class of one, and deserves much more space than I am allotting to it today.
The "Nihon Kaigun" site (if it is still around) hsa much detail on most WWII
The Class all were armed with 10 14" guns in two quadruple turretts and one twin turrett.
Obviously this saved weight which British shipbuilders wished to use for addttionall armor protection.
Mors on this class soon.
