    Random facts about the Battleship Tirpitz

    According to Wikipedia (with sources cited), Tirpitz was referred to by the Norwegians as the "Lonely Queen of the North." And to this day, the Norwegian Road Authority uses sections of Tirpitz's armour plating as temporary road surface during repairs.
