Pocket battleship Admiral Graf Spee (left) with battleship Gneisenau, 1938. Both were 11 in ships: it was originally envisaged that Gneisenau and her sister Scharnhorst would receive 6 x 15 in guns, but the design was not ready in time, so they received 9 x 11 in instead (an excellent design). The pocket battleships had only 6. Note also Gneisenau’s significantly thicker armoured belt.
