from 1944 to 1945 Z10 underwent the so-called "Barbara" anti aircraft refit, in this refit all of her existing 3.7 cm and most of her 2 cm guns were replaced with seven twin 3.7 cm SK M/42 mounts and three twin 2 cm mounts. She also had the installation of a FuMO 63 Hohentwiel K as well, she would remain in the state for the rest of the world being been decommissioned on the 9th of May 1945 she was then handed over to the British as a warprize. She would finally be sent to the breakers yard on the 17th of July 1949 after being used as a testing ship and as a Barracks ship.

during Operation Regenbogen Z16, Z4 and Z29 were all tasks is escorting the German heavy cruiser admiral hipper, in an attempt to occupy the attention of the convoy's escort while Lutzow and three other destroyers attacked the convoy. The three destroyers separated from Hipper to search for the convoy and were successful on the morning of 31 December. The destroyer HMS Obdurate spotted them in turn and closed to investigate when the German ships opened fire at a range of 8,700 yd. Obdurate turned away to rejoin the convoy without sustaining any damage and the German ships did not pursue as they had been ordered to rejoin Hipper. The Germans found the minesweeper HMS Bramble, which had been detached earlier from the convoy to search for stragglers, as they maneuvered to close with the convoy and the destroyers were ordered to sink her while Hipper engaged the convoy's escorting destroyers. This took some time in the poor visibility and Hipper was surprised in the meantime by the British covering force of the light cruisers Sheffield and Jamaica. After sinking Bramble, the German destroyers Beitzen and Eckoldt attempted to rejoin Hipper, ignorant that British cruisers were in the area. They confused Sheffield with Hipper when they spotted each other at 4,400 yd range and were taken by surprise when Sheffield opened fire on the nearest, Eckoldt, with every gun she had. Eckholdt broke in two and sank with all hands in less than two minutes; Beitzen escaped unscathed.

AWESOME! We've had most of the larger German WWII ships on the board now; definitely time to showcase the DDs!

Looking really good. Shading and style wise they're real beautes.

I have got a few quibbles though. Firstly, on the Hans Lody 1943 drawing there's a question mark above the main D mount. Secondly, regarding the B mount on the Freidrich Echoldt 1942 drawing: You've captured the elevation nicely, but I was of the impression that the piece extending beyond the rear of the shield is actally the breech of the gun, and should not be visible when the gun is elevated.
