Guys,
how much bigger is triptiz then her older Sister Bismarck.. I know Bismarck was 823-feet and Tirptiz was 824-feet-long. but i could be wrong on that.

Guys,
it's sad that she and Bismarck never got to be a team so the twins had, during the first few years of the wars.. That why she and Bis, scharny and Gneisenau are my favorites.. and in some kind of dumb way all four and win my heart, you know..
