But no 5.9 inch guns - so not Scharnhorst.

Well, the tab for the photo says ''cruiser'' and the outline of the upperworks does resemble a Hipper class cruiser.

So I would suggest the Blucher, on the grounds that Hipper would be too obvious an answer.

Prinz Eugen was fitted with an ''Atlantic bow'' which this ship doesn't have - an other reason why I thought it was Blucher.

So it is the Hipper - the obvious answer after all!
