Bismarck is the first boss from 1941: Counter Attack. It is a destroyer class battleship, based on the German battleship of same name.

Real World InformationEdit

Bismarck was the first of two Bismarck-class battleships built for Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine. Named after Chancellor Otto von Bismarck, the primary force behind the unification of Germany in 1871, the ship was laid down at the Blohm & Voss shipyard in Hamburg in July 1936 and launched in February 1939. Work was completed in August 1940, when she was commissioned into the German fleet. Bismarck and her sister ship Tirpitz were the largest battleships ever built by Germany, and two of the largest built by any European power.

In the GameEdit

Players will engage Bismarck within the canal where the stage takes place, with many of the same turrets found on the stage shooting at the player while Bismarck takes off. It will soon start to shoot at the player with it's own cannons while still diving through the canal. All cannons on the ship's hull can be destroyed, leaving the boss defenseless.
