The Mighty Tirpitz will almoust end its day here but not quite. Nov 12 1944 it finaly end at "Håkøy" near Tromsø. Approx 1200 men died with the vessel. The boat was demounted at same site but there is still some remanings left included craters of "Tallboy" boms who missed. Some of the panser was cut to plates who up to this day is still in use in capital Oslo when road work call for big holes in ground but still traffic can pass over it! There is a memorial bauta at that site. Kriegsmarinewerft Wilhelmshaven pride was not to change the outcome of WWII.
