Tirpitz was the second of two Bismarck-classbattleships built for Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine(navy) during World War II. Named after Grand Admiral Alfred von Tirpitz, the architect of theKaiserliche Marine (Imperial Navy), the ship was laid down at the Kriegsmarinewerft Wilhelmshavenin November 1936 and her hull was launched two and a half years later. Work was completed in February 1941, when she was commissioned into the German fleet. Like her sister ship Bismarck,Tirpitz was armed with a main battery of eight 38-centimeter (15 in) guns in four twin turrets. After a series of wartime modifications she was 2,000 metric tons (2,000 long tons) heavier than Bismarck, making her the heaviest battleship ever built by a European navy.
