Airfix A06205 HMS King Geroge V 1/600

Airfix Model Kit




Launched in 1939, HMS King George V was the first of a brand new class of ships for the
Royal Navy. Succeeding the Nelson Class, the new ships were more heavily armed than
their predecessors. Designed to take on the capital ships of the German Navy in open
warfare on the high seas, it was in action against the most famous of these ships, the
Bismarck, that HMS King George V earned its fame. Already damaged from the attetion
of Swordfish torpedo bombers, the Bismarck was a comparatively easy target for the
guns of then new British battleship and Bismarck was quickly overcome in the unequal
struggle, with her crew eventually scutling the ship rather than surrendering.
