SMS Baden (1915)
SMS Baden was the last dreadnought completed for the Kaiser's Navy. Laid down in 1913, work on Baden was delayed by the outbreak of World War I, and resources were diverted to complete other ships first, including the battlecruiser SMS Lützow. Lützow was sunk in the Battle of Jutland, and most of her surviving crew were reassigned to Baden. Commissioned in 1917, Baden missed the Battle of Jutland, and saw no action during World War I, despite being assigned as the flagship of Admiral Franz von Hipper. She was handed over to the Royal Navy at the end of the War. Baden's crew attempted to scuttle her with the rest of the interred German fleet on 21 June, 1919, but she was beached by the Royal Navy, and salvaged soon after. Baden was used as a target ship in 1921, and scuttled in 600 feet of water that August.
