KRONPRINZ was hit at the area of turret A in the section where the main charges are stored. The TDS was a bit narrower there and 50mm thick. There was extensive damage to the outer plating. The inner plating, seperating the void from the protective coal bunker was destroyed. The torpedo bulhead deflected max. 155mm but did not rupture, keeping the vitals save. A total of 250t of water entered the ship.

GROßER KURFÜRST was struck in the rudder rooms, which were flooded. She maintened 19kts and steering, somehow.
