I'd guess a result of a motti. They seem intact, so they were propably abandoned or they ran out of gas while they were being sieged.

The German cruiser Blücher listing heavily to port after being hit by cannon fire and
torpedoes from the Norwegian coastal fortress Oscarsborg. She sank a short time later.

A ship I just recently learned about:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USCGC_Eagle_%28WIX-327%29



The U.S. Coast Guard's cadet training ship, the Eagle.

The tall ship was taken as part of war reparations from Nazi Germany by the US and has continued training USCG cadets ever since.  It was formerly called the Horst Wessel and was used to train German cadets.  It was also built by the same builders as the Bismarck...which was the next ship in line after the Horst Wessel!

I recently got to tour it when it came into port in Newport, Rhode Island as part of it's training exercises. It is a beautiful ship and it is amazing that this ship built in 1936 still operates to this day!  8)

[img with=400]http://i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/image/upload/s--xNdLoA60--/c_fit,fl_progressive,q_80,w_636/1984s6hssk3w5jpg.jpg[/img]

The story behind this is quite 'funny', the Soviets trained suicide dogs armed with explosives for anti-tank duty. However, they trained the dogs only on T-34s. Apparently, the first time they were used in battle the dogs did not run towards the German tanks but towards the Soviet T-34s similar to the ones used in their training. Caused quite a lot of friendly casualties. Don't know how much of it is true though.

Actually its not that the tanks where different shapes they say it was because of the different fuel used by the Germans.
