The design for the first three of the five Admiral Hipper-class ships was prepared in 1934–1935.[7] Seydlitz and Lützow were initially designed as light cruisers; their design was prepared in 1934–1936.[8] These last two ships were to be armed with four triple turrets housing 15 cm (5.9 in) guns, as opposed to the four twin 20.3 cm (8.0 in) guns on the first three ships. The "light cruisers" were otherwise planned to follow the same particulars as their three "heavy" half-sisters.[9] On 14 November 1936, the Navy decided to complete the final two ships identically to the other members of the class.[10]The three completed ships were armed with eight 20.3 cm (8.0 in) SK C/34 guns in four twin turrets. At maximum elevation, the gun could reach out to 33,540 m (110,040 ft). The ships' heavy anti-aircraft battery consisted of twelve 10.5 cm (4.1 in) SK C/33 guns in twin mountings. Against surface targets, the guns had a maximum range of 17,700 m (58,100 ft).The ships' armament was rounded out by twelve torpedo tubes; they were mounted in four triple launchers on the ships' main deckThe ships' engines were rated at 132,000 shaft horsepower (98,000 kW) for a top speed of 32 knots (59 km/h; 37 mph)The Kriegsmarine regarded the ships as good sea boats, with gentle motion. The ships heeled up to fourteen degrees and lost up to 50% speed with the rudder hard over at high speed.Armada Special rules:Scout Plane
