Activity in European Theater of Operations. Animated map shows Tromso, Norway. Views of British Royal Air Force attempts to sink the Tirpitz in October 1944 show extensive smoke cover that hides the battleship Tirpitz, preventing attack. A second attempt failed on 29 October, 1944, as smokescreen and weather clouds prevented clear bombing. During that attempt, the Tirpitz is seen firing her 15 inch guns at incoming British aircraft, while she is moored off Hakoya Island outside Tromso. She was damaged by one bomb during that attack. Later, on November 12, 1944, aerial views show British aircraft of sqaudrons 9 and 617 bombing the Tirpitz, having caught her by surprise and without smoke screen. German Battleship Tirpitz bombed by multiple 6-ton "earthquake" bombs (or seismic bombs) dropped by British Lancaster bombers. The Tirpitz is seen as it rolls over before sinking at Tromso, Norway.
