Description


On 18 June 1935 a bilateral agreement between Great Britain and Germany, which set German naval strength at a ratio of 1/3 of the size of the Royal Navy was signed. Hence the Germans were allowed to maintain the fleet of the tonnage of 421,000 tons. It enabled the construction of 5 warships, 2 -3 aircraft carriers, 5 heavy cruisers, 5 light cruisers and 28 destroyers. Soon after the agreement had been signed the construction of two battleships and two so-called "Washigton" heavy cruisers, provisionally named "G" and "H." The cruiser "H," later named Admiral Hipper was built in Blohm&Voss shipyard in Hamburg. The ship was laid down on 6 July 1935 and launched on 6 February 1937. On 29 April the ensign was raised. This addition to the Super Drawings in 3D series provides intricate, full color drawings of this impressive ship, meaning it is the perfect addition to any collection and a useful tool for all those who are keen to learn more about the ship.
