Recently I did a video on Why the Bismarck didn't shoot down any of the Swordfish bi-plane bombers when it was attacked by 15 of them. Link to the Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PTO3JagV8gE

The Intro line of the video was:

The German battleship Bismarck was one of the most advanced warships at its commission, yet during its first operation it was struck critically by Fairey Swordfish bi-plane bombers, which look quite archaic and old-fashioned.

In this episode Justin (Master in Military History) and I will discuss the statement and several aspects around Warship Construction, Naval Warfare, Context, Ship Classes like Iowa, Yamato, North Carolina, Treaty regulations and all the other stuff that matters.
