- ONI 204 - German Naval Vessels - is issued in loose leaf to provide maximum flexibility. Ultimately the material comprising this identification manual on the German Navy will be as shown in the table of contents with such additional data as experimentation and experience prove to be of aid to the fighting forces. Meanwhile, to avoid delay in reaching the users of this and similar publications on foreign navies, introductory material and individual ship class jackets are issued as the information is processed and printed.
- While the manual of each naval power is designed as a separate entity and bound in appropriate Naval War College colors for ready reference, the format is so arranged that the holders of these several manuals can make any special assembly which may be indicated by the operating area, the strategical or tactical situation obtaining, or the limitations of the unit upon which the user is embarked. To facilitate such assembly the forces afloat will be issued separate Task binders into which the interchangeable sheets may be arranged into air views only, target angles only or any combination suitable for a given theater of operations.
- ONI 204 is a "Restricted" publication. Subject to the limitations imposed by its classification, it is the intent that the responsible officer feel free to exercise such latitude and discretion in its circulation as to insure a familiarity on the part of the officers and men of our fighting forces, and those of other United Nations, with the units of the German Navy.
- ONI 204 has been prepared from the best information available to the Navy Department. In the main, it is based upon published material and reconnaissance photographs. Except for fragmentary addenda which may be uncovered, the first source has been exhausted. It is expected that future revisions will derive largely from reconnaissance photographs and contributions (sketches and descriptions) from combat personnel.
- Cases of mistaken identity resulting frequently in tragic consequences have occurred with disconcerting regularity among European belligerents. These manuals are designed to facilitate timely recognition and to provide general and tactical information which may assist in the moment when contact with the enemy is first made.
- Corrections and addenda to ONI 204 will be issued as information becomes available.

CHARACTERISTICS OF GERMAN NAVAL VESSELS DIVISION OF NAVAL INTELLIGENCE - IDENTIFICATION AND CHARACTERISTICS SECTION - NOVEMBER, 1942
The larger and newer units of the German Navy resemble one another closely and share many common characteristics.
Their hulls show a marked sheer line, usually terminating in a characteristically snubbed clipper bow.
The low, rakish lines of the battleships and heavy cruisers have evolved through the higher and chunkier hulls of the older pocket battleships (now rated as heavy cruisers).
No two-stackers occur in the German Navy of a heavier classification than light cruisers. These ships stem from an older design type. Their stacks are rather slender, their sheer lines straighter, their hulls less rakish and they carry heavy tubular masts supporting light platforms.
The pre-Hitler battleships are unmistakable, with their low wide hulls and high stacks. Formerly three-stackers, the two forward funnels of these ships have been trunked into a single heavy forward stack, and they now show two stacks of unequal thickness (see below).
German destroyers have low hulls, with long forecastles. They are two stackers, with flat-sided stacks of unequal thickness, topped by exceptionally high clinker-screens.
Torpedo boats and escort vessels are often one-stackers. Their hulls may be flush or broken and their stacks also show very high clinker-screens in most instances.
Upper (left to right): Old Battleship; Heavy Cruiser; Battleship
Lower (left to right): Mine Sweeper; Torpedo Boat; Destroyer; Light Cruiser
German one stackers all have silhouettes that build up in pyramidal form to heavy tower foremasts. High aft rangefinders and bulbous A-A directors constitute unmistakable German elements in their design. "Humpbacked" main battery turrets characterize all new ships with the exception of Tirpitz.
Except in instances where masts have been applied to stacks, mainmasts are high, slender tripods or quadrupods.

GERMAN ONE-STACKERS DIVISION OF NAVAL INTELLIGENCE - IDENTIFICATION AND CHARACTERISTICS SECTION - SEPTEMBER, 1942
All the newer and more important ships of the German Navy are ONE-STACKERS. These ships are very similar in appearance, difficult to identify individually when seen in profile. It will be noted that aerial and bow or stern views are highly distinctive, however. The purpose of this chart is to call attention to the distinguishing characteristics of these ships.

MISTAKEN IDENTITY DIVISION OF NAVAL INTELLIGENCE - IDENTIFICATION AND CHARACTERISTICS SECTION - OCTOBER, 1942
Timely identification in wartime may often mean the success or failure of an operation. Design similarities present a peculiar problem. This is strikingly illustrated in the case of the German navy, which insofar as its major units are concerned, may be termed a one-stacker navy. Attention is invited to the ONE-STACKER CHART. This page further develops cases of easily mistaken identity by illustrations of types which might easily be confused with the main German naval units by the untrained observer.
GERMAN CAMOUFLAGE DIVISION OF NAVAL INTELLIGENCE - IDENTIFICATION AND CHARACTERISTICS SECTION - OCTOBER, 1942
Naval camouflage as practiced by the Germans has been limited entirely to surface deception against close-quarter attack. In every case the application has been made in view of the conditions under which the ships operate - short range sweeps and coastal sorties. The varying techniques illustrated, representing a few of the known cases, are considered as a whole only partially effective and merely a continuation of World War I practice.
The striping adopted for the larger units and illustrated here is considered almost entirely useless. At long range the coloring blends with the silhouette, while at close range the camouflage is not adequate for any target distortion.
The technique applied to the ADMIRAL HIPPER (two top strips) was used earlier in the war and presumably dropped. It is shown here because of its similarity to some British techniques and for whatever training value it may have.
The dazzle painting illustrated by the MÖWE (two bottom strips) is a good application for close range target distortion. The confusion is gained mainly from the false bearing created by painting corners, striping the stacks, etc.
M-1 R CLASS R CLASS
The technique of camouflage used here is to create a range confusion by a three dimensional dazzle. The T-1 Class photo shows it by the cubes, intended to give a perspective effect. In the M-1 drawing the same effect is sought by intertwining two- or three-color patterns.
The small-boat zebra striping follows the plan of using large areas for distance confusion, and small patches for close quarters. Another style is also shown, which is entirely futile, as the entire silhouette is accentuated.
The zebra painting is considered useful only in shore-line operations.
T-1 CONVERTED MOTOR-MINESWEEPER
The patterns shown on these miscellaneous trawlers and barrage breakers illustrate perhaps the most successful German camouflage. However, it is only a continuation of World War I practice and far behind the U.S. and British standard.

RANGE TABLE DIVISION OF NAVAL INTELLIGENCE - IDENTIFICATION AND CHARACTERISTICS SECTION - SEPTEMBER, 1942
Estimation of range by observing the amount of ship seen above or below the horizon.
EXPLANATION - Table of distances of Sea Horizon.
The distance corresponding to the position at which the horizon line cuts the ship profile should be filled in from the table for the observer as follows:
The column "SHIP BEYOND THE HORIZON" should show the sum of the distances of the sea horizon (a) for height of eye, (b) for heights of the respective horizon lines behind the profile.
The column "HORIZON BEYOND THE SHIP" should show the difference of these two distances.
EXAMPLE - The observer's height of eye is 79 feet. A ship is sighted beyond the horizon with the horizon line cutting its profile at a point 15 feet above the waterline.
DISTANCE OF SEA HORIZON FOR 79' = 20,610 YDS.
DISTANCE OF SEA HORIZON FOR 15' = 8,980 YDS.
SUM = RANGE OF SHIP = 29,590 YDS.
