[EN] HMS Hood was the pride of the Royal Navy. HMS Hood was a massively armed battlecruiser with what was thought to be armour equal to her armaments. To all intents, HMS Hood was considered to be one of the most powerful battlecruisers afloat in World War Two.

HMS Hood was 44,600 tons, had a crew of 1,419 and was faster than the Bismarck with a maximum speed of 32 knots (54 km/h). The Hood had been launched in 1918 and was armed with 8 x 15 inch (38 cm) guns, 12 x 5.5 inch (12.7 cm) guns, 8 x 4 inch (10,16 cm) AA guns, 24 x 2 pound (0,907 kg) guns and 4 x 21 inch (51.34 cm) torpedoes.


However, the Hood suffered from one major flaw – she did not have the same amount of armour as the Bismarck. The fact that the Hood was faster than the Bismarck by 3 knots was as a result of her lack of sufficient armour for a naval battle fought in World War Two. What had been considered sufficient armour in 1918 when Hood was built, was to prove a fatal flaw in 1941.


[FR] Le HMS Hood était la fierté de la Royal Navy. C'était un Croiseur de bataille lourdement armé avec lequel il était difficile de rivaliser. A tous les égards, il était considéré comme l'un des croiseurs de bataille les mieux armés de la seconde guerre mondiale.


Le HMS Hood pesait près de 44600 tonnes, comportait un équipage de 1419 hommes et était plus rapide que le Bismarck avec une vitesse maximum de 32 nœuds (54 km/h). Il a été lancé en 1918 et était armé de 8 canons de 15 pouces (38 cm), 12 canons de 5.5 pouces (12.7 cm), 8 canons de 4 pouces (10,16 cm) AA, 24 canons de 2 livres (0,907 kg) et de 4 torpilles de 21 pouces (51.34 cm).


Toutefois, le Hood souffrait d'un défaut majeur, il n'avait pas l’équivalent en blindage du Bismarck. le fait que le Hood était plus rapide de 3 nœuds fut la conséquence du blindage insuffisant pour une bataille de la seconde guerre mondiale. Ce qui était considéré comme suffisant en 1918 quand le Hood fout construit constitua un défaut fatal en 1941.
