The Bismarck, at 42,343 tons was, for her time, the largest and most up-to-date battleship in the world (next to the Hood ). On May 24, 1941, in a sea battle, together with the heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen, at the pack ice frontier of Greenland, with a direct hit by the 5th salvo from her 380 mm guns she sank the largest British battle cruiser the Hood. Launched on 14th February 1940 at the Blohm & Voss shipyard, Hamburg, together with the similar Tirpitz she was the most up-to-date and prestigious ship of the German navy. With a length of 251 m the top of the mast stood 52 m above the surface of the sea. She was protected by a total of 17,450 tonnes of steel armor plating. The newly designed heavy artillery fired 800 kg projectiles up to a range of 34.2 km and was capable of penetrating 350 mm armor at 21 km. Although the Prinz Eugen suffered no direct hits in the battle of May 24, the Bismarck, which was damaged in the bow, made for a French harbor. In the subsequent pursuit by British ships and aircraft, on May 27, 1941 a torpedo hit the rudder and after being hit by the superior numbers of the Home Fleet she was disabled and sunk in the Atlantic about 800 km off the French coast. Of the 2,092 men on board, 115 survived.
