HMS Prince of Wales

HMS Prince of Wales was the sister ship of HMS King George-V and HMS Duke of York. Both  of  these  battleships  fought  against  famous German Kriegs Marine battleships. HMS Prince of Wales fought against battleship Bismarck during the Battle  of Denmark  Strait. She  received  several  hits from  Bismarck  and  ceased  fire.  But later, she  changed  her course and began to follow German warships  from a safe  distance. During  this  time, both  ships  ( Bismarck  and  Prince  of  Wales ) opened  fire  within  some periods but no one could succeed to destroy each other. HMS  Prince  of  Wales  was  lost  during  an  unsuccessful   attack  against Japan  Navy,  at  Pacific  Ocean.  Japan  torpedo  bombers   hit  this Royal Navy battleship several times and succeeded to sink her. Her sister ship  HMS Duke of York  was  very   famous  too.  This  battleship destroyed  German  battle cruiser   DKM  Scharnhorst  during   the  Battle of North Cape.  This  battle cruiser  had  been  sank by the torpedoes of some British destroyers and cruisers later (26.12.1943)
