Historical Note:

atlas-logo.jpg  

The King George V-class battleships were the most modern British battleships used during World War II. Five ships of this class were commissioned: HMS King George V(1940), HMS Prince of Wales (1941), HMS Duke of York (1941), HMS Howe (1942) andHMS Anson (1942).

The Washington Naval Treaty of 1922 limited all of the number, displacement, andarmament of warships built following its ratification, and this was extended by the FirstLondon Naval Treaty but these treaties were due to expire in 1936. With increased tension between Britain, the United States, Japan, France and Italy, it was supposed by the designers of these battleships that the treaty might not be renewed and the ships of theKing George V class were designed with this possibility in mind.
