The supply convoys from the UK to Russia started in late 1941, following Churchills promise to Stalin to send convoys every 10 days. The Kriegsmarine and Luftwaffe were quick to respond ordering Tirpitz and a naval task force to Norway with significant fighter cover.

'Knights Move" illustrates Tirpitz in company with the Battleships Scherr and Hipper setting out from their base in the Norwegian Fjords to the North Atlantic convoy routes. Overhead cover is provided by Me109's of JG5 based out of Petsamo.
