From the shape and size of the gun turret this is more likely a heavy cruiser of the Hipper Class with 8 inch guns.
Thanks ROLAND1369...I suppose that the second turret is hidden by the sailors...

Another point that rules out the Pocket Battleships Sheer and graf spey is the presence of the ball shaped secondary AA fire control directors on the left side of the superstructure. The Pocket battleships had an earlier version which was a cylindrical shape.

The Tirpitz camouflage scheme was not used by Bismarck.

The modified forward main battery director, fitted, IIRC, around late-September, 1941, at Gotenhaven (Gdynia). is plainly visible.

Your previous question is most likely the "Douro" (II), as the first one was sold to Colombia and renamed ARC Caldas.
