Heavy Cruiser

History

The Admiral Hipper-class was a succession of five heavy cruisers of which three enlisted with the Kriegsmarine of Germany in World War II, one was sold incomplete to the Soviet Union in 1939, and one was converted to an aircraft carrier but never finished. The lead ship, and thus the class, was chosen after Admiral Franz von Hipper.
