UK, Scotland, Orkney Isles

English (Traduisez ce texte en Français): Scapa Flow is a body of water in the Orkney Islands, Scotland, United Kingdom. Surrounded by the islands of Mainland, Graemsay, Burray, South Ronaldsay and Hoy, it is best known as the site of the United Kingdom's chief naval base during the First and Second World Wars.

It contains some of the most interesting wrecks in the world.

- Cruisers: SMS Cöln II, SMS Karlsruhe II, SMS Dresden II, SMS Brummer and SMS Bremse. SMS Nürnberg II, SMS Frankfurt and SMS Emden II were beached.
