European Theater Date:1940 Duration:37 sec Sound:Yes
German naval vessel underway at a sea in the European Theater during World War 2. A brief view of a Scharnhorst class Battlecruiser. The Heavy Cruiser Admiral Scheer following her refit in late July 1940. Note her (slight) raked bow and the seaplane mounted behind the funnel. The bow of a Scharnhorst class Battlecruiser. Note the two forward 28 cm. triple turrets. Crew stand at attention at the bow of the ship. A German flag flutters on a flag pole. The angled funnel cap and lack of torpedo launchers on the rear deck identify this as a Scharnhorst class Battlecruiser. The forward 28 cm. turrets rotate prior to opening fire. View of the 28 cm. main armament. 28 cm. and 15 cm. guns open fire (possibly on targets in Norway?).
