In May 1941, the British heavy cruiser HMS Hood (51), the British battleship HMS Prince of Wales (53) and some other British ships, were sent out to search for the German battleship Bismarck, which had left Norway with the heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen for the Atlantic. On the morning of 24 May, the British capital ships found the enemy to the west of Iceland. In the resulting the Battle of the Denmark Strait, one or more of Bismarck's fifteen-inch shells got into Hood's after magazines. They erupted in a massive explosion. The great ship sank very quickly about 260 nautical miles east-south-east of Reykjavik, Iceland with all but three of her large crew. Meanwhile the Prince of Wales stands alone with the smaller ships but they can all survive.
This map is an open sea map. With the Bismarck, Prinz Eugen, a patrol boat, cargo ship and submarines, the Germans most capture the flags. Meanwhile the British have the same purpose with the HMS Hood (51), HMS Prince of Wales (53), one aircraft carrier and two destroyers. When the enemy capture all flags, the losing team will have support from the sky.
