Light cruiser SMS Königsberg trapped in the Rufiji delta in what is now Tanzania, 1915. After several British attempts to destroy her, shallow bottom monitors finally succeeded late that year. Her guns were salvaged by her crew which fought on with German East African forces in one of the least known campaigns of the war. Many of her guns were taken off and used by German land forces under command of Paul von Lettow. An amazing history, a big part of why I collect ships here.

Both. I know the history well. The in-game ship is a favourite of mine with its unique rear turrets that can switch facings forward and not the usual full turn-around.
