KMS Bismarck Battleship Kriegsmarine, Battle of the Denmark Strait, May 1941
When it was commissioned in the summer of 1940, the German battleship Bismarck was the largest warship ever built. Moving more than 50,000 tons at full load, the Bismarck was very well armed and had superior endurance qualities, which made it particularly well suited in its role as a ravaging force in the commercial convoy field. Despite these advantages, its career was shortened because during its first mission. Designated to intercept convoys between the United Kingdom and North America, the Bismarck sank the British battle cruiser HMS Hood in the Strait of Denmark, and was sunk two days later by a retaliation force of British ships and Swordfish biplanes.
