Operation X-Plan

This was the German unrealised naval scheme, created under the leadership of Kapitän Werner Fuchs, for the complete co-ordination and integration of Germany’s capabilities to plan, design and build warships, for use in the event that the Anglo-German Naval Agreement of 1935 with the UK failed, as a means of ensuring that the German navy received large number of advanced warships in as short a time as possible (1937).
