British Royal Navy Battlecruiser Hood 1941 Length: 262.3m Width: 32.0m Displacement: 42560t Battlecruiser Hood is the third and last battleship named Hood of the Royal Navy, 1915 Started in year. The original Hood class plans to build four ships. The Hood was not truly completed until 1920, and there is no doubt that she was the most powerful warship at the time. Her displacement of 41,200 tons far exceeded that of the largest battleship at the time in 20 years. Throughout the winter from 1940 to 1941, the Hood patrolled the North Sea near Iceland in search of any German warships that attempted to invade, especially large warships. When the Bismarck and Prince Eugen formations appeared in May 1941, the Hoods wait seemed to be worthwhile. She set off with the new battleship Prince of Wales, hoping to intercept and destroy the British fleet before the Germans broke up. At 5:52 on May 24, 1941, the Hood began shooting at German warships 25,000 yards away, and relied on turning to continuously shorten the distance to the German warship formation. The German warship's counterattack was very precise, and their third salvo hit the vicinity of the main mast of the Hood and caused fire. At 5:55, in order to be able to use all the firepower against the German ships, the British formation began to turn. After performing the same maneuvers, the fifth salvo of the Bismarck had a devastating effect. The violent explosion created a water column 1000 feet high. The Hood was blown into two quarters and sank within two minutes. Only 3 of the 1,415 crew survived.
