As you dive to the bottom of the battleship lost main gun turrets, and massive deck superstructure, after which he once again turned over and plunged already decked up. Upon reaching the bottom, 'Bismarck' at high speed crashed into an extinct underwater volcano. From the hull battleship blown off 10 meters aft. After that, the deceased 'Bismarck' bellies fell on the surface of the slope, crawled along the bottom about two miles and stopped forever in the waters of the Atlantic about 600 miles from Brest During the battle with the British fleet on 'Bismarck' was released: 380 406 mm caliber shells from the battleship 'Rodney', 339 356 mm caliber shells from the battleship 'King George', 527 rounds of caliber 203 mm with a heavy cruiser 'Norfolk', 254 rounds of caliber 203 mm with a heavy cruiser "Dorsetshire", 716 152 mm caliber shells from the battleship 'Rodney', 660 rounds of caliber 133 mm from the battleship 'King George '.
