Hi,

thanks for the comments!

After repairing the damages sustained by the torpedo hit, Lützow spent most of spring '41 in the Baltic.
She embarked on trials and working up for "Operation Sommerreise" (summer cruise), a commerce-raiding mission which was postponed from April 1940 and was scheduled to commence in June. The mission had to be aborted early, when Lützow was attacked and hit by a British torpedo bomber on her way to Norway.

My drawing depicts her during exercise in the Baltic, sporting a typical "Baltic-style" camouflage:

The damages suffered during "Operation Sommerreise" took Lützow out of action until early 1942.
After finishing the repairs and surviving a number of heavy air raids on Kiel, Lützow was transferred to Norway to join the other German heavy surface units already stationed there.

The drawing shows her during her passage to Norway:

Lützows' reputation of being an unlucky ship was further evidenced in July 1942, when she ran aground in thick fog during "Operation Rösselsprung", necessitating three months of repairs.

Further operations were also unsucessful:
In december 1942 she took part in "Operation Regenbogen" (rainbow) against Allied convoy JW51B. A combination of extremely bad weather, tactical errors and vague orders led the German battle-group, consisting of Lützow, Admiral Hipper and six destroyers, into failure.
In the resulting action, the Battle of the Barents Sea, the destroyer Friedrich Eckholdt was lost with all hands and Admiral Hipper was damaged. Lützow and the five surviving destroyers Z 24, Z 30, Z 31, Richard Beitzen and Theodor Riedel returned home unscathed. The British lost the destroyer Achates and the minesweeper Bramble and had three destroyers damaged. No merchant ship of the convoy was lost.

This last drawing shows Lützow during autumn 1942 to winter 1942/43 during her stay in Norway and "Operation Regenbogen":

Thanks for looking!
