Part 2 - Bridge & Conning Tower
Open Bridge
A view from starboard of the open bridge on Bismarck. The big structure in front of the open bridge is a storrage room.
A port side view of the open bridge on Bismarck. The horisontal surface of the big storrage room, in front of the open bridge, is painted in dark grey. The submersible is Mir 2.
Conning Tower
An excellent starboard view of the conning tower. Remains of the camouflage (wellknown stripes on the super structure) can still be seen on the wreck. The stripes were not entirely removed in Norway before Bismarck broke out in the Atlantic. The horisontal surface is painted in dark grey.
The conning tower seen from the port side. Notice the huge damage to the left of the photo. Dark grey horisontal surface of the conning tower and super structure white camouflage stripes is easily recogniseable.
Another port side view of the conning tower and open bridge. The huge damage to the bridge area is most likely caused by a big 40,6 cm (16 inch) shell from HMS Rodney. The shell didn't explode, but have been fatal for people on the bridge..
Another port side view showing the massive damage to the bridge of Bismarck. It was opened like a can, most likely from a 40,6 cm (16 inch) shell from HMS Rodney.
