Both guns in B turret, guns 2 and 4 in A turret and gun 2 in Y turret were put out of action by jams and remained so until after the action — 5 guns out of 10!

There were a multitude of other problems with mechanical failures and drill errors that caused delays and missed salvos. There were also some misfires — one gun 3 of A turret misfired twice and was out of action for 30 minutes before it was considered safe to open the breech. During the early part of her action against the German capital ship Scharnhorst at the Battle of the North Cape on 26 December , Duke of York , firing under radar control in poor weather, scored 31 straddles out of 52 broadsides fired and during the latter part she scored 21 straddles out of 25 broadsides, a very creditable gunnery performance.

In total, Duke of York fired shells in 77 broadsides. The King George V s were the only battleships designed for the Royal Navy to use inch guns and turrets. The QF 5. The RN Gunnery Pocket Book published in states that: " The maximum rate of fire should be 10—12 rounds per minute. The King George V -class design had four 0. In , to combat air attack, four Unrotated Projectile rocket mountings were fitted, one on "B" turret, two on "Y" turret and one replacing a pom-pom mount added in at the stern.

The pom-poms in King George V were designed and produced by Vickers Armstrongs, as a result of a post- World War I requirement for a multiple mounting which was effective against close-range bombers or torpedo planes. The normal ammunition supply on board for the Mark VI was 1, rounds per barrel. King George V was the first ship of the class to join the Home Fleet on 11 December and her first action was providing distant cover for Operation Claymore in February , before escorting Atlantic convoys , HX during March. Prince of Wales would attempt to reengage Bismarck on two more occasions, but owing to the distance being in excess of 20, yards was unable to land any more hits and was forced to return to Iceland to refuel and would play no further part in actions against Bismarck.

After 32 min of firing King George V had fired inch shells at Bismarck , scoring multiple hits that contributed to Bismarck sinking soon after. Roosevelt , that resulted in the Atlantic Charter being declared, which laid out how the allies intended to deal with the post-war world, on 14 August The force then diverted to British Malaya as they had received intelligence that Japanese forces were landing there, however, this was a diversion and on 10 December the force was spotted by a Japanese submarine.

This led to rapid flooding, as the port outer propeller shaft had been damaged, high-speed rotation of this unsupported propeller shaft destroyed the sealing glands around it, allowing water to pour into the hull. The ship subsequently began to take on a heavy list. Several other bombs from this attack were very "near misses", which indented the hull, popped rivets and caused hull plates to "split" along their seams which intensified the flooding aboard Prince of Wales. At the order was given to abandon ship and at Prince of Wales capsized and sank with Vice-Admiral Phillips and Captain Leach being among the fatalities.

Anson covered her last convoy on 29 January , before being relocated, with Duke of York , to the Mediterranean. In June , the two battleships took part in Operation Gearbox , which was designed to draw attention away from Operation Husky. They bombarded Trapani naval base on 12 July and defended Algiers against an air raid, before departing to take part in Operation Avalanche. Between 9 and 11 September they provided support for Operation Slapstick and later escorted the surrendered Italian fleet to Malta. When the German battleship Scharnhorst was relocated to Norway, it was deemed necessary to provide heavy protection for all convoys bound for Russia.

On 25 December, Scharnhorst was reported at sea. Initial contact was made by the cruisers of Force 1 Belfast , Norfolk and Sheffield but following a brief engagement, Scharnhorst was able to outdistance the cruisers. Scharnhorst scored two hits upon Duke of York during the engagement, both of which hit masts and failed to explode. One of the Duke of York ' shells exploded in Scharnhorst ' s number one boiler room, slowing her significantly and allowing British destroyers to close to torpedo range. All Scharnhorst ' s turrets were silenced and shortly afterwards Scharnhorst sank with the loss of over 1, men.

Following this, on 29 March , Duke of York provided cover for convoy JW 58 and in August Duke of York and Anson provided cover for the aircraft carrier Furious , while it carried out air strikes against German targets in Norway as part of Operation Bayleaf. The first major operation that the task force undertook was Operation Iceberg , offshore support for the US landings at Okinawa, which started on 1 April. On 4 May, the two battleships led a forty-five-minute bombardment of Japanese air facilities in Ryukyu Islands.

In mid-July, they joined US battleships in a bombardment of industrial installations at Hitachi. During the Okinawa campaign, the pair supported British carriers. Their last offensive action was a night bombardment of Hamamatsu on 29 to 30 July Duke of York and Anson arrived too late to take part in hostilities, but on 15 August they accepted the surrender of Japanese forces occupying Hong Kong.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Not to be confused with King George V-class battleship Main article: Sinking of Prince of Wales and Repulse. Main article: Battle of the North Cape. It is calculated by dividing fuel consumption in pounds per hour, into the shaft horse power produced by the turbines.

The French battlecruiser Dunkerque achieved 0. The high seawater content was caused by a number of factors; the King George V class used fuel oil as part of the Side Protection System in the liquid layers of the SPS. As the fuel was consumed, water was allowed to enter the bottom of the layer to maintain its defensive qualities. The low viscosity fuel used in the early part of war resisted mixing with seawater and what seawater contamination did occur was easily removed.

Additionally Britain's oil tanker fleet was relatively intact. After oil tanker losses to enemy attacks increased and the demands for more aviation fuel led to a degradation of bunker fuel used in steam driven naval vessels. This fuel readily absorbed seawater from older oil tankers that had increased propensity for seawater leakage, and from contact with seawater in the SPS system.

It was also very much more difficult to remove the seawater once this poorer quality fuel was contaminated. Possibly post-war. Armor protection of the battleship KM Bismarck. It had very good armour properties and was used extensively on the King George V -class battleships as a support for deck and belt armour and for hull, deck and splinter proof plating. The Magazines were stated to withstand inch plunging fire up to 33, yards.

Okun's calculations omit the 1. Side and front data from Burt, rest from Garzke and Dulin.

Event Information

The figure of six hits seems to stem from post sinking analysis, probably by the Bucknill Committee and some survivor reports. While the hull area around Frame is indented, and with split seams and popped rivets, there is no torpedo hole. See 3D images made from the study of Expedition 'Job 74' video footage.

This was the torpedo that damaged the bracket of the port-outer shaft, distorted the shaft itself, and permitted the vast inrush of water. It is small wonder that the committee was baffled This volume, for example, proposed three alternative theories based upon a torpedo hit or hits at frame that defeated the SPS. The design of most naval projectiles is based primarily on using the projectile as a vehicle with which to carry a quantity of explosive into a ship and secondarily to provide missiles with which to carry the force of the explosion.

Recent underwater inspection of the wreck of the Bismarck showed that the 14 inch guns performed at least adequately in this action. The conning tower on Bismarck had greater armour protection than its main belt, which had a maximum thickness of King George V-class battleships. London: Arms and Armour Press, p. Bismarck and Prinz Eugen also suffered a loss of output.


At Salvo 18, when Prince of Wales turned away, 3 of 'A' turret's guns were in operation. At Salvo 18, when Prince of Wales turned away, both 2 of 'B' turrets guns were in operation.

At salvo 18 when Prince of Wales turned away, 2 of "Y" turrets guns were in operation. By that time KGV was having trouble with her main battery and every gun missed at least one salvo Long Range Armament and Secondary Armament against surface craft. The main differences between the two mountings lie in the arrangements of the shellrooms and magazines, and the supply of ammunition to the guns. The 5. The maximum rate of fire should be 10—12 rounds per minute. Archived from the original on 24 April Retrieved 16 May Books Breyer, Siegfried. Battleships of the World — Conway Maritime Press.
