15 in battleship Bismarck at Kiel, summer 1940. She is not yet in commission, lacking rangefinders and stores (thus riding high out of the water). She was sunk in the Atlantic on 27 May 1941 by an avenging Royal Navy after sinking the famous battlecruiser HMS Hood a few days earlier in one of the most celebrated naval episodes of WW2.
Scharnhorst in heavy seas, showing mainmast shipped aft (see Gneisenau photo nearby). She was sunk in a pure surface action (no air involvement) at the Battle of North Cape in December 1943 by the battleship HMS Duke of York and supporting units.
