The Tirpitz in Colour
The Tirpitz in Scheerhafen, Kiel in June-August 1941.
The Tirpitz in June 1942 im Fættenfjord near Trondheim, Norway.
This photo is apparently taken from the heavy cruiser Admiral Hipper and is showing the Tirpitz to the right and to the left of the Tirpitz a German destroyer can be seen. The photo is taken in Norway. The combination of the paint scheme used on the Tirpitz and that she is together with Admiral Hipper in Norway indicates that the photo is taken in 1942 and most likely during Operation "Rösselprung" which took place 2-6 July 1942. Notice the yellow turret top on the main gun of Admiral Hipper.
