Historie [1]

Den tyske jageren Wolfgang Zenker endte sine dager i Rombakfjorden utenfor Narvik den 13 april 1940 etter at hun hadde gått tom for ammunisjon og drivstoff etter kamper mot de britiske styrkene. Wolfgang Zenker tilhørte den tyske Kriegsschiffgruppe 1 som hadde sikringen av Narvik som mål under den tyske operasjonen Weserübung i 1940. I dette andre sjøslaget den 13 april prøver Wolfgang Zenker å angripe det britiske slagskipet Warspite med torpedoer sammen med de tyske jagerne Hans Ludemann og Bernd Von Arnim, men blir drevet tilbake av tung ild, men de klarer å skade den britiske jageren HMS Punjabi under slaget. Etter dette tar Wolfgang Zenker retning inn i Rombakfjorden, og mannskapet senker selv jageren i Rombaksbotten kort tid etter. Vraket av Wolfgang Zenker hviler i dag på grunt vann i Rombaksbotten på ti til seksten meters dyp. SFT undersøkte vraket i 1999 for olje, og konstaterte at vraket ikke utgjorde noen stor trussel mot miljøet lenger med hensyn til forurensing...

Historie [2]

he destroyers of the "Zerstörer 1934A" class were the first four destroyers build in Germany after World War I. Based on the same design principals as the torpedo boats, those ships showed some serious problems after completion, which was partly caused by the fast naval construction programs after 1933. They were very bad seagoing ships, like most other German vessels they took over a high amount of water during heavy seas, making their forward artillery unusable. Further they showed a structural weakness since the hull started to bend in heavy seas and were burdened with heavy vibrations produced by the engines. Their high pressure turbine engines caused many problems during operations, which were limited by the short range of those ships. The idea was to equip the ships with the newly designed high pressure turbines because this system seemed to have several advantages about normal turbine systems - at least on the paper. Test installations on land were very promising, but when installed on board on the destroyers, the engines rooms got very crowded making maintenance very difficult. Like all other German destroyers, they were all equipped for mine laying which was intensively used during the first months of the war. Most ships of this class did not survive the second year of the war, two of them were even sunk by own bombers, but in their few operational months, they did some successful mining operations near the British coast.
