Jump to: navigation, search

Ten Cöln class cruisers were planned to replace war losses. Only two were completed and five further vessels launched, however, owing to shortages of manpower and materiel.

They were generally similar to the precreding Königsberg class, but featured the larger 60cm torpedo in place of the 50cm models.
