SS Scharnhorst was launched in 1934, completed in 1935 and made her maiden voyage on 8 May 1935. She was the first big passenger liner built in the German Third Reich. She sailed under the German merchant flag and was the second ocean liner named after General Gerhard J. D. von Scharnhorst (1755-1813), the Prussian army reformer and military theorist. She was converted into an aircraft carrier of the Imperial Japanese Navy and renamed Shinyo in 1942 and sunk by US submarine Spadefish in the Yellow Sea in 1944.
