Tamiya TAM77518 SCHARNHORST BATTLE CRUISER(31801) (1/700)

The German battleship SMS Schamhorst, part of the Kriegsmarine during World War II, was a formidable capital ship with her sister vessel SMS Gneisenau. Launched in 1936, SMS Schamhorst boasted formidable armament, including nine 28 cm (11 in) guns, and robust armor protection. Throughout the war, she played pivotal roles in various operations, including commerce raiding and engagements in Norwegian waters. Notably, SMS Schamhorst participated in the historic Battle of the Denmark Strait in May 1941, where she and her sister ship, alongside the heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen, sank the British battlecruiser HMS Hood. However, her service met an end during the Battle of the North Cape in December 1943, facing overwhelming British naval forces. Despite her brief service, SMS Schamhorst remains a symbol of Germany's naval efforts during World War II.
