Oh well thanks for the education. You mean like the Hood being 25 years older than the Prince of Wales with zero decking armor. I'm not talking about "planking". A modern battleship like the Bismark dropped a round through a wood deck, hit the ammo and sunk it? Tell me more. The Prince of Wales put a beating on Bismark while facing down her and the Prinz Eugen, and stayed in the fight for the duration. So much for the mighty Bismark.
