Operation Zitronella: Tirpitz role at Spitzbergen

11 in battleship Scharnhorst, probably taken during Operation Berlin, her commerce raiding cruise in the North Atlantic in early 1941, undertaken with sister Gneisenau.

11 in battleship Scharnhorst in Norway, mid 1942 (her camouflage scheme had changed by the time of her loss in December the following year).  She saw more active service than any other German capital unit of WW2.  She was easily distinguished from Gneisenau (pictured nearby) by her mainmast, located aft whilst her sister's remained adjacent to her funnel.

German Battleship/Battlecruiser Gneisenau, derelict at Gotenhafen

11 in 'panzerschiffe' Deutschland pre-war: the first of the three 'pocket battleships', she was not built with the visually impressive enclosed control tower of her sisters Scheer and Graf Spee, which made these ships appear much more formidable than they actually were. Renamed Lutzow for political reasons on the outbreak of WW2, she survived till crippled by RAF bombing in April 1945.
