Description

"Counterstrike", a prestigious battlecruiser, was built in Scotland and completed in 1916. She then underwent a large-scale modification, which was completed in 1922. Between 1933-1936, the Counterattack was again modernized, including improved deck armor, hangars and aircraft catapults, and added a large number of air defense weapons. In the first two years of World War II, she followed the domestic fleet on missions in the North Sea and the Atlantic, and participated in the search for Bismarck in May 41. She was then sent to the Far East with the Prince of Wales. When the two ships arrived in Singapore, it was when Japan launched the Pacific War, and the Japanese Malay Ozawa Fleet was responsible for covering the Japanese landing fleet landing on the Malay Peninsula. The Counterattack and the Prince of Wales immediately set sail from Singapore to intercept the Japanese fleet. After many setbacks, there was no encounter with the Japanese fleet, but with the Japanese land-based aviation. On the way back to Singapore, the Counterattack and the Prince of Wales were attacked by Japanese high-altitude bombers and torpedo aircraft. The Counterattack was injured by a bomb and was later hit by several torpedoes. After suffering such a fatal blow, she quickly sank, and less than an hour later, the Prince of Wales was also sunk.
