World of Warships Supertest: HMS Hermes

3 min read

Today I’ve found a surprise inside the CV Beta Build, HMS Hermes. The British Aircraft Carrier makes a sneaky entrance making it possible for a Royal Navy CV branch to be released soon.

HMS Hermes was a British aircraft carrier built for the Royal Navy and was the world’s first ship to be designed as an aircraft carrier, although the Imperial Japanese Navy’s H?sh? was the first to be launched and commissioned.

The ship’s construction began during the First World War but not completed until after the end of the war, delayed by multiple changes in her design after she was laid down.

Finally commissioned in 1924, Hermes served briefly with the Atlantic Fleet before spending the bulk of her career assigned to the Mediterranean Fleet and the China Station. In the Mediterranean, she worked with other carriers developing multi-carrier tactics. Hermes returned home in 1937 and was placed in reserve before becoming a training ship in 1938.

When the Second World War began in September 1939, the ship was briefly assigned to the Home Fleet and conducted anti-submarine patrols in the Western Approaches. She was refitted in South Africa between November 1941 and February 1942 and then joined the Eastern Fleet at Ceylon.

On 9 April 1942, a Japanese scout plane spotted her near Batticaloa, and she was attacked by several dozen dive bombers shortly afterwards. With no air cover, the carrier was quickly sunk by the Japanese aircraft. Most of the survivors were rescued by a nearby hospital ship, although 307 men from Hermes were lost in the sinking.
