HDMS Niels Juel (1918)

Also a coastal defence vessel.

We tried to get into swedish waters, when German occupation decided to overtake the danish ships, its was quite damaged during thar operation, called Operation Safari.

We tried to scuttle it, but failed.

In 1944, the ship was salvaged, renamed Nordland and used by Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine as a training ship.[1] On 3 May 1945, she was sunk during allied air raids in the Eckernførde inlet. The wreck was later salvaged and on 19 March 1952 was sold for scrap.[1]
