The Prestige-class battlecruisers were originally the last two ships of the Revenge-class battleships: the Prestige and the Counterattack. After the outbreak of World War I, the British Navy cancelled the construction plan for the two Revenge-class in August 1914. After the Battle of Jutland, the two ships that were newly commissioned based on the experience of naval battles received modifications to strengthened armor and structures. After the end of the First World War, the two ships again carried out enhanced armor modifications and added aviation facilities. The two prestige-class ships have carried the British royal dignitaries for many visits during their service life. In the 1930s, it was re-modernized and refitted. The prestige was rebuilt and rebuilt. The bridges were completely dismantled and rebuilt. The power system was replaced with a new type of boiler. The auxiliary guns were all removed to install new high-level dual-purpose guns, and various types of anti-aircraft guns and new radars were installed. Due to the outbreak of World War II, the Counterattack failed to carry out a large-scale modification similar to that of the Prestige. The Counterattack was sunk by the Japanese in November 1941 and the Prestige became the last battlecruiser in service by the British Navy. In 1944, he went to the Pacific battlefield in the Far East. After the war, the Prestige was retired and demolished in 1948.
