HMS Renown
HMS Renown was a battlecruiser of the Royal Navy that entered service in 1916. The classical symbols depicted on the ship's badge—the laurel wreath and the torch of glory—echo the name of the ship.
From May 23, 1941, HMS Renown, under the flag of Vice-Admiral Somerville, took part in the hunt for the battleship Bismarck. On May 26, Force H headed by the battlecruiser appeared to be the only force capable of holding off the raider ship's breakthrough to France. The main task for HMS Renown was to provide cover for the aircraft carrier Ark Royal that had delivered the major blow to the German battleship.

These British battlecruisers will benefit from the new Torpedo turning mechanic. This mechanic is based on a method used in real life to correct the course of a torpedo after launch. In the game, the mechanic serves to expand the aiming possibilities for ships with limited or fixed torpedo tube angles, as it allows for launching torpedoes in directions that the tubes themselves cannot physically turn towards. Immediately after launch, torpedoes will change course towards a selected direction and continue in a straight line.
