Nah, I thought it was known enough but since it's been a week..

The sinking of the Tirpitz.

Sister-ship of the Bismarck, it went under in that Norwegian Fjord ( Tromsøfjord ). The craters from the tallboy-bombs dropped by British bombers still remain part of the landscape today.

Notice that rectangle shaped structure just out on the coast there? It's where the Tirpitz was scrapped after it had capsized.

That would be Maupertus. Sepp's maps are the easiest to figure out since he uses the actual Google maps of the area for his templates.

Bingo!

Todt Battery is made of 4 huge bunkers built to protect 380mm guns aimed at firing on Great-Britain. At first, they were aimed at supporting the German invasion of UK.
The battery was completed in January 1942 by Todt’s organisation. Todt was the engineer who built in 1933 the first motorways in Germany. During WW2, his organization was in charge of 14000 sites and 300 000 workers, mainly dedicated to fortify the western coast of Europe : the Atlantik wall...
During the three years the battery was operational the four guns fired 200 shells each, threatening Dover and the ships in the Channel...
In 1944, even after 2 air raids who dropped 2000 tons of bombs, the battery did not surrender. The bunkers were not damaged and they were finally captured by Canadian tanks, who fired through the loopholes to explode the explosives stored under the bunker guns.
