Konigsberg. Norwegians get some credit here.

Post  Black Hornet on Tue 12 Apr 2011 - 10:15

the Königsberg found itself committed to the Norwegian invasion. Along with its sister ship the Köln it overpowered the defences of Bergen, but was damaged in the process, stopping her leaving with the Köln when the air raids of the 9th April made it plain they had been spotted by the RAF. Hence she found herself on the end of the Skua attack at dawn the following day which sank her.

Her hull was refloated in July 1942 and later turned upright. However, the hulk sank again in 1944
