HI Rathi - Bismark and Tirpitz were of the same class but as frequently happens in warship building there are alterations made to later ships
in the class - As the second ship Tirpitz had some minor differences notably 2.6 meters longer and a deeper draught - otherwise the hulls were
almost identical and had the same beam measurements.   I believe there were also differences on the superstructure

Hi,

Tirpitz was some 20 cm longer due to a different bow layout. Bismarck was 250.52 m long.

Mr. Gally from Germany made a good Tirpitz plan set. Google for it!

Bye!

Hi,

books are patient. Bismarck and Tirpitz have the same hull, a difference occurs in the bow because they were designed with an almost orthogonal bow. The bows were redesigned by the ship yards and each found a little different solution. The hull design was delivered by the Konstruktionsamt of the Kriegsmarine and is the same for both ships.

HTH,

Bernd.
