About the British Battle Cruiser Repulse Launched in 1916, the H.M.S. Repulse took part in WWI naval actions before being refittedduring the inter-war years. When WWII broke out, the Repulse was in the Atlantic, escortingconvoys, hunting German commerce raiders, covering Allied forces near Norway, and chasingGerman capital ships such as the Bismarck. She was then transferred to the Far East as adeterrent against Japanese aggression. Together with the Prince of Wales and 4 destroyers,the Repulse formed Force Z, which sortied from Singapore in December 1941 and was sightedby Japanese aircraft. In the resulting attack, both the Repulse and Prince of Wales were famouslysunk, demonstrating that even capital ships were vulnerable to air attack.
