Below is PART of an article on the finding of SCHARNHORST:
Seen for the first time in almost 60 years, Scharnhorst's hull lies upside down on the seabed. Her main mast and her rangefinders are the right way up on the seabed some distance away. As is her entire poop deck, with the stern anchor still in place.

The hull shows extensive damage from both armour-piercing shells and torpedoes. HMS Duke of York fired 80 broadsides; and the Allied ships fired a total of 2,195 shells during the engagement. Some 55 torpedoes were launched at Scharnhorst, and 11 are believed to have found their target. There is now an explanation of why she sank so suddenly. A massive internal explosion - probably in an ammunition magazine below a forward gun turret, had blown off her bow. The entire bow section remains together as a mass of wreckage and armour, but separated from the main wreck.

Eigentlich waren die Schiffe der Scharnhorst-Klasse als Schlachtschiffe eingestuft. Lediglich durch ihre vergleichsweise schwache Hauptartillerie wurden sie von den Alliierten fälschlicherweise als Schlachtkreuzer eingestuft.

Fantastic. The ship that survived the 'Channel Dash,' and made her last stand at the Battle of North Cape. :pride:
