* - If you don't know the story - A Swordfish came in toward the Bismark's stern and with a hundred to one shot, disabled its rudder, so it could only steam in a circle. Taking the shot - taking any shot - against that ship called for more balls than brains. A lot more. The aircraft could make maybe 100 knots with a torpedo. Yow.
