Graf Zeppelin German Aircraft Carrier

The Graf Zeppelin was the one and only German aircraft carrier; however it was never completed or used. As the sole German vessel in this class it deserves a special place. On 16.11.1935 the German naval high command issued an order for it to be built by the Deutsche Werke Kiel AG. It was to by crewed by a company of 1720 and carry 110 aircrafts. Water displacement : 27,750 tonnes. It was launched on 8.12.1939.

However by 1939 doubts had already arisen about its capabilities. In April 1940 construction work was halted and in July the Graf Zeppelin was towed to Gotenhafen and following a general stoppage of shipbuilding in April 1943, it was taken to Stettin. On 25.4.1945 the Graf Zepplin was sunk at its berth by a demolition squad. However, in March 1947, it was raised by the Soviet navy and later that June it was finally sunk by torpedoes.
