Admiral Scheer was a German heavy cruiser, also known as a pocket battleship, the keel of which was laid in 1931 and launched in April 1933. The battleship entered the rope service in the German Navy (German Kriegsmarine) in November 1934. The ship was 186 m long, 21.6 m wide, and had a full displacement of 16,200 tons. The maximum speed of Admiral Scheer was around 28-29 knots. The main armament was 6 280 mm guns in two triple turrets, and the secondary armament included: 8 150 mm guns or 6 105 mm guns.

Admiral Scheer was one of three Deutschland class ships launched in the 1930s. The ships of this type were theoretically built in accordance with the provisions of the Versailles Treaty of 1919, which imposed the maximum displacement on German ships, but in fact their full displacement clearly exceeded these limits. Deutschland-type units were built in such a way as to have an overwhelming advantage in the artillery battle with any British or French heavy cruiser. The combat career of Admiral Scheer began during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), when she fired on the city of Almeria. Between 1940 and 1941, he took part in numerous cruising operations in the Atlantic, aimed primarily against British merchant ships. In 1941, he briefly operated in the Baltic, blocking the Soviet fleet, and in early 1942 he was transferred to Norway, acting against Allied and Soviet Arctic shipping. In the years 1943-1944 he served in the Baltic Sea again, supporting, among others, the German land forces fighting in Estonia during the Monnsund operation. It works there until March 1945, when it was sent to Kiel to exchange main artillery barrels. Admiral Scheer was sunk on April 9, 1945 in Kiel as a result of a British bombing raid.
