Tirpitz in Altenfjord, Norway after March 1944.

Tirpitz painted black, her last paint scheme, in the summer of 1944.

November 12, 1944: Tirpitz under attack while at anchor at Håkøya Island near Tromsø, Norway. Tirpitz,
to the right of the bomb splashes, can be seen firing a salvo from her forward turrets. Only a portion of the ship
is visible through the smoke. Tirpitz finally rolled over after receiving three direct hits from Tallboy bombs.
