Formidable had a hectic yet short life, commissioned early 41, badley damaged both in the med 41 and latterly by kamikazi in 45, although she was swiftly back in operation the damage was far more severe and she was found to be beyond economic repair come the end of the war she paid off in 47.
Brief discussions were held regarding her conversion to a 'double ender' missile crusier for Sea Slug, however this was shelved and hence she sold for scrap in 53.
