Launched in 1927, the 571-foot ship led the attack on the southern Norwegian port of Kristiansand during the invasion of Norway on April 9, 1940.  With nine cannons and three triple turrets, it was "the largest and most fearsome ship in the attack group," Statnett said.

For anyone that cares, she was a sister ship to the KMS Königsberg...one of my favorite ships in WOWS.
