Bismark Battleship (1:100) by Forces Of Valor Diecast Military
Item Number: FOV86001
At the time she was commissioned in the summer of 1940, the German battleship Bismarck was the largest warship ever completed. Displacing 50,000 tons fully loaded, Bismarck was well armed and had superior qualities of endurance, which made her particularly well suited to her role as a commerce raider. Despite these advantages, however, her career was cut short during her first mission. Assigned to intercept convoys traveling between the United Kingdom and North America, Bismarck sunk the British battlecruiser HMS Hood in the Denmark Straight, and was herself sunk two days later by a retaliating force of British ships and Swordfish biplanes.
