Important question: what is the age necessary? I heard some people and Niko bring up the term minor but that is an age that varies in each country. And in case we take the US, is it 18 or 21? By german standarts I am fully adult (18) but I doubt that german law counts here.

Torpedoes don't have any friends. So they will kill everything in their path. To prevent team kills we should all watch out where we fire those fishes. That means each and everyone of us, DDs of the second line!

No my name does NOT refer to those things from Odysseus! They refer to those loud things attached to a fire truck. Not to beautiful girls singing on the Ocean.

It's 18 here anyway, so it's irrelevant for you. :)

Do try to keep it around 500 words, but we will consider it even if it breaks the limit a little. It's not really a strict rule, but a base line :)

 

And no, that doesn't mean you can go all the way to 1000 or something like that.

500 words right on the nose!

 

 

Additional Source Used: http://www.kbismarck.../graf-spee.html


 

 

 

Admiral Graf Spee - The third and final Panzerschiff of the Deutschland class led successful commerce raiding missions from the time the United Kingdom declared war on Germany on September 1, 1939 through to its final day of December 17, 1939; sinking 9 British ships weighing 50,089 GRT.
 

Construction began October 1, 1932 and she was commissioned January 1936. With a crew of 1150, she had a standard displacement of 12100mt up to 16200mt with waterline length of 181.7m or 186m total, beam of 21.65m and draft of 7.34m. Her main belt armor of 100m (with 13 degree incline) and conning tower of 50-150m protected her vital parts while 75-100m and 45m protected her gun turrets and torpedo bulkhead respectively, with 34-45mm of deck armor. In addition to gun firepower she was equipped with 8x53.3cm torpedo tubes in two quadruple mounts. Her main gun armament consisted of the following:

  • 6x28cm in two triple turrets SK C/28 guns.
  • 8x15cm in single turrets SK C/28 guns.
  • 6x10.5cm in three double mounts SK C/33 guns.
  • 8x3.7cm in four double mounts SK C/30 guns.
  • 10x2cm in single mounts MG C/30 guns.

To assist in spotting she was equipped with both radar (FMG 39G (gO)), and a seaplane (Heinkel He-60 (replaced in 1939 with 1 x Arado ar 196)). 8 MAN diesel engines with 2 shafts, and 1 rudder allowed her to achieve speed up to 28.5 knots and 53,650hp at trials with a fuel capacity of 2720mt and endurance capacity of 16500nm at 18knots or 7900nm at 26knots.

 

She joined the fleet on May 9, 1936 under her first of three captains, Captain Konrad Patzig. She began non intervention patrols during the Spanish civil war from 1936 until moving to the Atlantic Ocean in August 1939 in preparation for a war with Europe which began September 1, 1939. During this time, she also participated in representing Germany on the occasion of the coronation of King George VI (1937), and both the launching of Prinz Eugen (1938) and Tirpitz (1939).

 

During her successful but short lived commerce raiding mission in which she sunk 9 British ships on December 13, 1939 she engaged 3 British cruisers Exter, Ajax, and Achilles. She opened fire at Exeter from a distance of about 10 miles during the battle of the River Plate. Although Exeter was completely put out of action and Ajax had X and Y turrets disabled Graf Spee was hit by 20 shells of a mix of 8 and 6inch caliber. Suffering significant damage with 36 dead and 60 wounded Captain Langsdorff, who had been captain of the ship since November 1, 1938, decided to head to the neutral port of Montevideo for repairs. At the dock Uruguayan authorities allowed just 72 hours for repairs. The Germans decided 72hrs was not enough time for the ship to be seaworthy and Langsdorff decided to scuttle the ship and save the crew interned at Argentina.

 

December 20, 1939 Captain Langsdorff commited suicide.

Read sources, make notes I want to talk about on notepad, put stuff in MS word, bring to 500words, post it in browser, realize it didn't post properly and spend 90% of the time used editing it in the browser as it never seems to post properly?

Done.

Apologies for the odd spelling error, I'm in Australia so I'm used to spelling some words (defence = defense, manoeuvre = maneuvers) differently.

Note: I had to edit it because it didn't copy over my syntax properly =-=

If you have some errors with spelling I recommend OpenOffice. It's a free software and it saved me from several spelling mistakes. It's kind of like MS word and you can set the language for the autocorrector.

 

My spelling is also srewed up due to german words sounding so similar that I mix them up. Example maneuver and the german Manöver. Mix them and you get manouver. Or in this case even worse River Plate is Río de la Plata in germany. Battle of Jutland is Skagerakschlacht here.

Edit: fixed paragraph spacing.

 

 

P.S. I wondered if I should pull a Graf Spee; grossly overstepping the word limitation, all the while stating the essay to be of 500 words long  :P
