Baden SMS Baden was the only capital ship to survive the scuttle at Scapa Flow.  She was then ceded to the British who inspected her thoroughly and compared her to the equivalent Revenge class.  She was found to be a good gun platform in calm seas but rolled alarmingly in rougher conditions.  Well protected against underwater and flat trajectory fire, but inferior to Revenge against plunging fire.  She was also found to be structurally weaker than her British contemporary.

SMS Hindenburg sinking. Originally raised in 1926, a few days later she was sent back to the bottom by a gale, costing the salvage company £30,000.  She was raised again in 1930 by the same company.  800 holes had been plugged in the first attempt, 300 of these having to be re-sealed on the second successful attempt.
