IMO if a DE is hit by a submarine torpedo you wouldn't have to try to look wounded because most likely the ship's keel would be broken, with the ends of the ship not in alignment. In any case, a sub isn't going to want to surface in gun range of even a crippled DE.
So, I went to my local store looking for a model of the ship but instead I bought a small KGV (1/1250, I think) because it had more guns and I though it would beat anything my friends had.
Here we have the newest, largest German warship whose size just eclipsed Britain's largest warship for the title of world's largest, with similar speed and main armament. Then add that the very first battle for this new ship is against the very ship she eclipsed (what are the odds?). Then add that she demolishes her opponent in minutes - shocking the world. The world famous Hood - still reputed (then)to be the largest warship afloat - the symbol of the supremacy of the Royal Navy - gone!
The add the desperate chase, with the twists and turns of fortune culminating in defeat for the great Bismarck in the last harrowing cannonade at the last possible minute.
