Scharnhorst class battleships

In 1935, Adolf Hitler succeeded in concluding a major maritime agreement with Great Britain. Under the agreement, Germany was able to build 35% of the tonnage of British battleships, aircraft carriers, cruisers and destroyers. The construction of submarines was also allowed. In the first phase, 45% of the British tonnage was allowed and for the next stage there was even talk of compliance. This treaty, in its consequences, annulled the conclusions of the Versailles arrangements. After the conclusion of this contract, the construction of the so-called pocket battleships was abandoned and the construction of much larger and, according to the original plan, much better armed.
