This article refers to a planned ship that was not actually built.
ww2dbaseR was one of the 6 M1-class light cruisers that the German Navy planned but never built. She was among the two that were to be larger than the other four. Like her sisters, she was intended to be used as a fast merchant raider. No work ever started on her.
