Hi Ohara and Tiornu,
A good thought, Ohara. A good question, Tiornu. I have done some checking.
According to "The Chronology of the War at Sea" the German Baltic Fleet did make a sortie over 23-29 September into the Aaland Sea in case the Red Fleet attempted a break-out from Leningrad, which was in danger of falling to German ground forces.
However, it apparently sailed in two groups:
Northern Group: 1 battleship (Tirpitz) , 1 pocket-battleship (Admiral Scheer), 2 light cruisers (Koln, Nurnberg), 3 destroyers (Z25, Z26, Z27) and five torpedo boats (T2, T5, T7, T8 and T11).
Southern Group: 2 light cruisers (Emden, Leipzig)
They sailed on 23 September, but Tirpitz, Scheer and two torpedo boats were recalled the next day.
Thus the maximum number in a single task force was one battleship, one pocket battleship, two light cruisers, three destroyers and five torpedo boats.
I would still say that this is weaker than two battleships, a heavy cruiser, six destroyers and 14 torpedo boats.
Any other suggestions?
