Hello, everyone. Here is a big update of the heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen. It features a significantly improved and more realistic hull as well as many new details such as water intakes, detailed secondary guns and many more!


[EN] Prinz Eugen was an Admiral Hipper-class heavy cruiser. She was laid down in April 1936, launched in August 1938, and entered service after the outbreak of war, in August 1940. She was named after Prince Eugene of Savoy, an 18th-century Austrian general. She was armed with a main battery of eight 20.3 cm (8.0 in) guns and, although nominally under the 10,000-long-ton (10,000 t) limit set by the Anglo-German Naval Agreement, actually displaced over 16,000 long tons (16,000 t).

Prinz Eugen saw action during Operation Rheinübung, an attempted breakout into the Atlantic Ocean with the battleship Bismarck in May 1941. The two ships destroyed the British battlecruiser Hood and moderately damaged the battleship Prince of Wales in the Battle of the Denmark Strait. Prinz Eugen was detached from Bismarck during the operation to raid Allied merchant shipping, but this was cut short due to engine troubles. After putting into occupied France and undergoing repairs, the ship participated in Operation Cerberus, a daring daylight dash through the English Channel back to Germany. In February 1942, Prinz Eugen was deployed to Norway, although her time stationed there was curtailed when she was torpedoed by the British submarine Trident days after arriving in Norwegian waters. The torpedo severely damaged the ship's stern.

Upon returning to active service, she served as artillery support for the retreating German Army on the Eastern Front. After the German collapse in May 1945, she was surrendered to the British Royal Navy before being transferred to the US Navy as a war prize. After examining the ship in the United States, the US Navy assigned the cruiser to the Operation Crossroads nuclear tests at Bikini Atoll. Having survived the atomic blasts, Prinz Eugen was towed to Kwajalein Atoll, where she ultimately capsized and sank in December 1946. The wreck remains partially visible above the water approximately two miles northwest of Bucholz Army Airfield, on the edge of Enubuj. One of her screw propellers was salvaged and is on display at the Laboe Naval Memorial in Germany.



[FR] Le Prinz Eugen était un croiseur lourd de classe Amiral Hipper. Il a été déposé en avril 1936, lancé en août 1938, et est entré en service après le déclenchement de la guerre, en août 1940. Elle doit son nom au prince Eugène de Savoie, un général autrichien du XVIIIe siècle. Il était armé d'une batterie principale de huit canons de 20,3 cm (8,0 po) et, bien que nominalement en deçà de la limite de 10 000 tonnes (10 000 t) fixée par l'Accord naval anglo-allemand, a déplacé plus de 16 000 tonnes (16 000 t).

Prinz Eugen a participé à l'opération Rheinübung, une tentative d'évasion dans l'océan Atlantique avec le cuirassé Bismarck en mai 1941. Les deux navires détruisirent le croiseur britannique Hood et endommagèrent modérément le cuirassé Prince of Wales lors de la bataille du détroit de Danemark. Prinz Eugen a été détaché de Bismarck pendant l'opération de raid sur la marine marchande alliée, mais cette opération a été interrompue à cause de problèmes de moteur. Après avoir mis en France occupée et subi des réparations, le navire a participé à l'opération Cerberus, une audacieuse course à la lumière du jour à travers la Manche jusqu'en Allemagne. En février 1942, Prinz Eugen fut déployé en Norvège, bien que son temps d'affectation ait été réduit quand il fut torpillé par le sous-marin britannique Trident quelques jours après son arrivée dans les eaux norvégiennes. La torpille a gravement endommagé l'arrière du navire.

À son retour au service actif, elle a servi de soutien d'artillerie pour l'armée allemande qui battait en retraite sur le front est. Après l'effondrement de l'Allemagne en mai 1945, il fut livré à la marine royale britannique avant d'être transféré à la marine américaine comme prix de guerre. Après avoir examiné le navire aux États-Unis, l'US Navy a affecté le croiseur aux essais nucléaires de l'opération Crossroads à Bikini Atoll. Ayant survécu aux explosions atomiques, le Prinz Eugen fut remorqué jusqu'à l'atoll de Kwajalein, où il chavira et coula en décembre 1946. L'épave reste partiellement visible au-dessus de l'eau à environ deux milles au nord-ouest de l'aérodrome de l'armée de terre de Bucholz, à l'extrémité d'Enubuj. Une de ses hélices à vis a été récupérée et est exposée au Mémorial naval de Laboe en Allemagne.

Ooh really? You have pics of his model?
And thanks!
No worries, Unfortunately I don't. We worked on it around 14 years ago I think, but as his illness progressed we abandoned it. I was also doing the Scharnhorst at the same time, but that was also abandoned
