This is a question, i asked on another forum im on: This is kind of the same idea, but it's a little bit difince then one we did on here About Her vs. the two heaavy cruisers Norfolk and Dorsetshire. If Renown and Repulse went up against PE, could they handle her, and get a tow line on her to keep her from helping her brother Bismarck in his last fight against KGV, Rondey, Norfolk and Dorsetshire?

I guess what i was trying to ask is could they hold on to her with the towlines til, bismarck got sank, then when KGV and Rondey, when back to scapa flow, the four of them take her back with them. But if they able to get a prize crew on board, they dont have to two her, but say in a net around her, so she can run for freedom, that what i ment ok..

What i mean by getting in a net around her with KGV, Rodney,behind her and Renown, her sister on each side of PE! if she gets in to a wiggle and squimming mood, how do they handle her or is she dogmeat? And Explain why, it would help me understand better?

Why bother? A few 15" shells and PE is headed for the bottom.

As dozens of posters on other forums have told you (including myself) the idea that the British would attempt to capture the Prinz Eugen in the middle of a battle against the Bismarck is totally insane.
if in doubt....Panic!!!!

The question remains, WHY DO SO? It isn't like the Prinz Eugen was some secret supership or anything.
Happy Trails,

Because of the way the RN interpretted the battle line they mistook the Prinz for the Bismarck, and shot at the smaller target while the Bismarck got to take some "free" shots before crippling her own radar range finders.

What is with this love of the Prinz? It was a decent heavy cruiser but nothing more.
Happy Trails,
Clint.

Why are you so obsessed with Prinz Eugen. You keep putting these "What if" scenarios - What if Prinz Eugen was bombed in Port? What if the Swordfish had hit Prinz Eugen with a torpedo - what if the entire Kriegsmarine decided to make Prinz Eugen their flagship~???

I know that you asked me about posting questions, but please post What Ifs is the what if forum. I did not realize this is what you were wanting to ask.

You have asked this question here before, I see no reason to bring it back up again.
