The official AHF Kriegsmarine quiz thread

Post by Marcus » 07 May 2005 11:52

We've had several different quizes running here in the forum for a while with great success and this new section has been open for a long while without one, so I'm starting one here too.

The rules are very simple:
The first one to post the correct answer to a question, posts a new question (must be on the Kriegsmarine) and so on.

A question to get things started:

Which ship was on 12 June 1940 permitted to fly the Austro-Hungarian war flag?

Yes , "Lützow" & Schlesien are already correct . But "Graf Zeppelin" went never to service , so it had never a Kriegsmarine banner on top . So the never finished carrier does not count at this specific question ...

Whats Nr. 3 ?
