The SMS Brummer and its sister ship, the SMS Bremse, were built at the beginning of the First World War in order to strengthen the German naval fleet. They were fast, successful ships with a decent radius of action. Both were sunk in Scapa Flow. Later, in 1929, the SMS Bremse was lifted. The SMS Brummer stayed behind and is now one of the finest wrecks in this area. The ship is on the starboard side at a depth of 36 meters, with many of its war arsenal still on board.
