Just say the Bismarck saga had of been later as Hitler originally did not want WW2 to start until 1945!
What would have happened if the RN had despatched HMS Prince of Wales and HMS Vanguard to intercept the Bismarck and Prinz Eugen?
My money would have been on both German ships sunk or badly damaged!!!
As a side note in WAS game has any one ever gone up against Bismarck with Vanguard and what was the outcome?

Hmmm. The Vanguard would have been better armored and have had much better fire-control in 1945.  This would have given it an advantage.

Eugen would be the 5 year old watching teenagers fighting.  If Bismarck could identify the ship classes fast enough, they would turn tail from this fight and not risk taking the damage I think...

Quite agreed. Difficult to imagine what scenario would have been. I would assume, Bismarck might have had an escort carrier...
