About the Tirpitz:
The Tirpitz was the sister ship to the Bismarck and was named after German Admiral Alfred von Tirpitz. It was commissioned into the German navy in February 1941. It played a major role in the Norwegian fjords. It was a serious threat to Allied convoys to Russia until it was crippled by mines laid by British midget submarines. She finally sunk on November 11, 1944 after being hit by tallboy bombs.
