14 in battleship HMS Prince of Wales after her engagement with Bismarck and Prinz Eugen on 24 May 1941, in which battlecruiser HMS Hood was lost. She was hit by 5 x 15 in and 3 x 8 in shells before being forced to break off the action, hitting Bismarck 3 times in reply. One of the hits proved critical, isolating much of Bismarck’s fuel supply and forcing her to head direct to occupied France. Of course she never got there.
