Often reported to be Scharnhorst, this is in fact her sister Gneisenau: after reconstruction with raked 'Atlantic' bows and funnel caps (as here), Scharnhorst's mainmast was shipped much further aft, whilst Gneisenau's remained adjacent to her funnel. Critically damaged by RAF bombing shortly after the famous 1942 'Channel Dash', she never went to sea again.

Das Schlachtschiff Gneisenau war das zweite Schiff der Scharnhorst-Klasse. Das 38.900 Tonnen verdrängende und 235 Meter lange Kriegsschiff war ebenso imposant wie nutzlos. Während der Seekrieg im Pazifik von den Flugzeugträgern geprägt war, war er im Atlantik vom U-Boot-Krieg bestimmt. Die Zeit der Schlachtschiffe war längst abgelaufen.
