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 11 inch battleship Scharnhorst: she saw much action in the war, finally being sunk at the Battle of North Cape on 26 December 1943 by a British task force led by the battleship HMS Duke of York. Only 36 of her crew survived.
