Launched in 1936, the 16,200-ton displacement Admiral Graf Spee was one of a class of German warships originally built as battleships but later classified as heavy cruisers. the Admiral Graf Spee served as fleet flagship, sinking British merchant ships in the Atlantic until she herself was hunted by the British fleet in the South Atlantic. Thinking she was trapped with no chance of escape, her crew scuttled her in December of 1939.
