COBI 4823 Prinz Eugen Heavy Cruiser
Prinz Eugen entered service in 1940 and was the only major German ship to survive the war, but ultimately met a surprising end. In May 1941 she accompanied the battleship Bismarck on Operation Rheinübung, during which she battled the British ships Hood and Prince of Wales, sinking the former. Damaged by the Prince of Wales, she underwent a renovation, during which the Prinz Eugen was bombed by the Allies. In February 1942, together with the battleships Scharnhorst and Gneisenau, she participated in Operation Cerberus, which was designed to take large Kriegsmarine ships from France to Germany. From 1942 to 1943 she served mainly in the Baltic Sea as a school ship. From October 1944 to April 1945 she supported German troops fighting in Kurlandia and then East Prussia. On the 8th of April, 1945, Prinz Eugen sailed to Copenhagen, where she was transferred to the British in May 1945. In December 1945, the ship was taken over by the Americans, who in 1946 used the cruiser for nuclear weapons tests at Bikini Atoll. The ship suffered only minor damage, was later towed away and sank. Today it rests partially sunk on Kwajalein Atoll.
