The only Hipper class ship not in World of Warships. Of course, with this history, it really isn't surprising that they would choose to not have this one, especially since the other four are all in game with valid reasons as to why they belong.

280mm guns will do that to a Cruiser.  The close confines makes it even worse.  There's a long history of fortresses being used to protect vital waters, even in the Age of Sail.  Fortresses had to be taken seriously as a number of them could have some big guns, like what happened in this engagement.  Larger guns have been used for coastal defense, even so far as 406mm guns.

 

"Though my guards may sleep and ships may rest at anchor, our foes know full well that big guns never tire."
