HMS Hermes was the first purpose-designed aircraft carrier to be built (although the Japanese Hosho was the first to be commissioned). She spent much of her time on the China station and was too small and obsolescent at the start of WW2. When the Japanese moved into the Indian Ocean in 1942, she was rapidly overwhelmed by aircraft and sunk.
Length 155mm beam15mm.Most of the Kent class were rebuilt prior to WW2 and Neptun has modelled the different variations. HMS Cornwall was re-fitted in similar fashion to HMS Berwick.
New for 2012! At last, a Mark 1 Hunt class escort destroyer from Neptun. These ships were designed to carry 8 main guns but Atherstone capsized whilst fitting out, so B-turret was removed from them all, as modelled here
