The Bismarck was the widest battleship in the world. Only the Japanese battleships of the Yamato Class (then still under construction) would have a wider beam of 37 m

On September 17, 1939, the Royal Navy aircraft carrier HMS Courageous was hit by torpedoes from the German submarine U-29, and sank within 20 minutes. The Courageous, on an anti-submarine patrol off the coast of Ireland, was stalked for hours by U-29, which launched three torpedoes when it saw an opening. Two of the torpedoes struck the ship on the port side, sinking her with the loss of 518 of her 1,259 crew members.

Amagi (天城?) was a Unryū-class aircraft carrier of the Imperial Japanese Navy built during World War II. Named after Mount Amagi,[1] and completed late in the war, she never embarked her complement of aircraft and spent the war in Japanese waters. The ship capsized in July 1945 after being hit multiple times during airstrikes by American carrier aircraft at Kure Naval Base. Amagi was refloated in 1946 and scrapped later that year.
