It is TEMERAIRE and Bismarck was sunk by the Royal Navy, the supposed scuttling is irrelevant even if true.

Spelling corrected. But sources I've read all say that she was scuttled, though they also said that the accumulated damage would have caused her to sink eventually.

I understand the inclusion of ships actually started building but never finished but if you are going to include ships that were planned and never actually started then you need to include them all - including the German and Japanese ships too, not just the Allied ones. Personally I would exclude any ships not actually laid down because anything else is just vapourware!

Germany didn't name their ships until after they launched them - therefore any name before then is purely speculative The H-class were all assigned alphabetical code names, and neither received names nor had any official name proposals published.

As for Japan, all we have are design name of the A-150 class, no actual names either.
