There is a good topic about the ship, but let me assure it didnt shot down that many a/c down during that attack, nor even during its whole carreer..

Here are some stats for the various "H" designs. The original version was actually laid down, but very little effort went into construction because of the start of the war.
H-39: 52,600 tons (standard), eight 406mm guns, 30 knots.
H-41: 62,992 tons, eight 420mm guns, 28.8 knots.
Then came the extravagant studies. Eventually these designs became so large that they could not have fit through some German waterways.
H-42: 83,268 tons, eight 480mm guns, 32.2 knots.
H-43: 103,346 tons, eight 480mm guns, 31 knots.
H-43: 122,047 tons, eight 508mm guns, 30.1 knots.
They all featured the same secondary and heavy AA weaponry (twelve 150mm and sixteen 105mm guns), and of course the unique submerged torpedoes.
In appearance, the design resembled a Bismarck, enlarged, but with two funnels for its diesel power plant.

were salvage (scrap) operations performed?
maybe there are still some remains of the ship to be seen, or a trace of the major equipemnt could be done (engines, etc)..
please comment

Hello friends...
here I am again with trying to complete "THE LIST" of ALL equipment about the WW2 from the German side of things.

Pertaining to "Secret Kriegsmarine projects", I have a few on the list BUT I still need to add ALOT more for everyone to know.
Help me out if you can, with information ...and of course at least one good photo to see what it looked like.
If it did not exist, perhaps a drawing or a photoshop art-picture.

So here is a "short" list in the meantime to get you started on YOUR researches. I will help out in "ANYTHING" you might need or want :)

Cheers

Hi
About German concepts of building carriers.
At first after Graf zeppelin laid down Hitler heard about idea battleship+carrier in one (smth like Ise at end of the war), great admirals don’t like it (still believe in guns) but Hitler order to study concept.
It was idea of large ship that can attack enemy convoys (in situations of enemy dominations on the sea) – so it was smth like “carrier raider”. That ship have to avoid enemy ships and their own aircrafts can help J . Artillery on the prow was good becasu planes destroy convoys and artillery was use only at the end.Aircraft can also be use in helping kriegsmarine “clasic raiders” on their attacks, and inally recon missions.
So first conceptions were Flugdeckkreuzer (10000t up to 40000t), 20 aircrafts (9 of them fighters) with cover own ship and can attacks enemy convoys (also recon)
Before any practical realization new conception was born:
Grossflugdeckkreuzer (typ AI, AII) (40000t) faster (34 knots) – that help running away (if big warships appear) 28 aircrafts (12 fighters), 4*203mm 16*150 and 16*105AA, also heavilly armoured (deck to 100mm), later number of planes increased to 38 (because slowly main “guns” became planes), but it wasn”t accept because another project appear
Atlantikflugzeugkreuzer (A III, A IV) – 70000t, main artillery 280mm, 50 aircrafts (still 12 fighters), heavier armoured – deck 150mm, side 250mm.. and it was end of all this paper creations of German carrier.
Still growing necessity about armour, artillery and esspecialy planes – create 70000 monster
So they back to concept small carrier that can make operation with clasic ship (help main fleet) – so conception of 12000-22000t carrier appear again (E IV, E V, E VI) – main gun 150mm, 10-25 planes. At the same time concept of special ship – that can carry flying boats (I’don”t know correct English word) Bv 138(from 7 to 10) – survace from 13000 to 36000t (I G, I E – main role for this last was recon for main fleet.
But German shipyards simply can”t build any of this projected ideas (better to said that ships), so there were conception of very small “planes ships” – smth like MAC – 3000t, 3 fighters (maybe 5 if rebuilt of Hansa).

Don” know if this help but I thing.. maybe J
Good to know YOU can help J
Best regards

Carrier B was not the Seydlitz conversion, but Graf Zeppelin's unnamed sistership.
Hybrid designs were considered by most of the large navies during the 1930's and 40's due in part to the treaty situation. These were almost universally awful designs.
Anyone wanting a complete list of German vessels during the war should consult DIE DEUTSCHEN KRIEGSSCHIFFE 1815-1945 by Erich Gröner. For projects that never get very far, you can also try the various books by Whitley. His capital ship book also covers the aircraft carriers.

"Why Kriegsmarine made such paranoia-plans in that late period of the war?"
The question is not so much why the Germans made the plans as why anyone cares about them.
Designers are always doing paper studies as exercises and investigations into practical applications of the lessons they've learned. This is always going on. For example, you may have heard about British plans for a Dido cruiser with seven or more turrets. This is not because the RN actually wanted such things but because the designers wanted to understand the implications of the design specifications. The "H's" became bigger as the designers asked themselves questions like, What would we need to do to create a ship with protection against a 2000kg bomb? Or, What tonnage would be needed for a ship carrying 50cm guns? Those are just examples; I don't know offhand exactly what they were looking into, but this is the general idea of how the process works. As I said, this stuff goes in all the time. I guess the "H" revisions have caught on because they were so absurdly large. You'll find other weird things in other navies. I remember seeing the Spring Style for an aircraft carrier built on an Iowa class hull. It has a hand-written note on the side saying (allow me to paraphrase), "When hell freezes over."
Does everyone remember the Tillman battleships?

The Tillman battleships--oh, this is a fun story!
Benjamin R. Tillman was a powerful United States Senator during the 1910's. He sat on the Senate Naval Affairs Committee, and he had concerns about the sorts of ships Congress might authorize. He therefore requested a series of studies laying out the absolute maximum battleship designs that USN would find operationally practical (i.e., those that could fit through the Panama Canal). These designs reached as high as 90,000 tons (almost three times as large as the battleships of the time). The main batteries were extremely powerful, as you can imagine; the most outrageous were fifteen 18in guns in triple turrets or twenty-four 16in guns in sextuple turrets! Friedman's book US Battleships has information on these along with some Spring Style drawings. Here's a quote: "These Spring Styles were drawn in December 1916 in response to Senator B R Tillman's demand for a concrete limit and represent alternative emphases. They were not conceived as approaches to practical designs. The figures for a 'maximum battleship' were published, however, and as late as 1940 the House Naval Affairs Committee complained that US battleships were far from what they could be, that is, far from the Tillman ship."

Hi
Yes - there were plans (hybrid ships) in USRR (Gibs&Cocks) and Japan(G7-?) as I remember.

Also there is theory- just the theory that there were one U-boot XI "Die Schwarz Ritter" - I would say "private ship"(owned by organisation sofindus) sunk by K25.

About Carrier B as Tiornu said- it was another "Graf" type.
Also projected rebuilt passangers: Europa, Potsdam, Gneisenau(Japanes rebuilt finally Scharnorst-as "Shinyo") and captured Fr. light cruiser "De grasse" (which was in built) - but never started.

About Light cruiser, I have infos that M-R ships were new project (not Leipzig, for example heavier than Leipzig), and nwe type (1941 ordered) - 3 ships

Wow.. cool stuff..

One question, wasn't the Seydlitz a aircraft carrier CLASS and not a name on a project AC? I believe that Graf Zeppelin was of Seydlitz class..

Hi
"Graf Zeppelin" and Flugzeugträger "B" were another class as I know (BTW "B" were supposed to be named "Peter Strasser", not confirmed)
Seydlitz was cruiser that was planned to laid as carrier (project "Weser 1")
Regards :)

There were German merchants ships,trawlers,sailing schooners that were converted to German Q-ships for anti-submarine warfare during WWII. Hidden torpedoe tubes and guns. Much like the Q-ships of the Royal navy of WWI. I believe that the Kriegsmarine Q-ships were also used to hunt down partisan boats off the coast of Yugoslavia and elsewhere on the world seas.
