Admiral Hipper is a Naval Order in Kards - The WWII CCG.
Admiral Hipper was the lead ship of the Admiral Hipper class of heavy cruisers which served with the German Kriegsmarine during WWII. The ship was launched in 1937 and entered into service in 1939, shortly after the outbreak of the war. Admiral Hipper was used in the Battle of the Atlantic and saw a significant amount of action. The ship sank the British destroyer HMS Glowworm in 1940 and several merchant ships in 1941 before returning to Germany. The ship was then transferred to Northern Norway where it participated, with some success, in operations against Allied convoys sailing to the Soviet Union in 1942. In 1943 the ship returned to Germany for repairs and never returned to active service after that time.
