1. Well-written:
1a. the prose is clear and concise, it respects copyright laws, and the spelling and grammar are correct. * I have done a bit of a c/e of the lead to add wikilinks. Feel free to revert any you don't think are necessary.
* Spotchecks for copyright problems all clear.
1b. it complies with the manual of style guidelines for lead sections, layout, words to watch, fiction, and list incorporation. * I really think the first sentence needs to be more comprehensive in terms of defining the subject. It is a very short sentence and doesn't really provide much information. What about something like "Königsberg was a German light cruiser that was operated between 1929 and April 1940, including service in World War II. She was the lead vessel of her class, and was operated by two German navies, ..."
* I have a query about the format of the article title. According to WP:NCSHIP Königsberg should be italicised in the title.
2. Verifiable with no original research:
2a. it contains a list of all references (sources of information), presented in accordance with the layout style guideline. OK
2b. all in-line citations are from reliable sources, including those for direct quotations, statistics, published opinion, counter-intuitive or controversial statements that are challenged or likely to be challenged, and contentious material relating to living persons—science-based articles should follow the scientific citation guidelines. OK
2c. it contains no original research. OK
3. Broad in its coverage:
3a. it addresses the main aspects of the topic. OK
3b. it stays focused on the topic without going into unnecessary detail (see summary style). OK
4. Neutral: it represents viewpoints fairly and without bias, giving due weight to each. OK
5. Stable: it does not change significantly from day to day because of an ongoing edit war or content dispute. OK
6. Illustrated, if possible, by images:
6a. images are tagged with their copyright status, and valid fair use rationales are provided for non-free content. OK
6b. images are relevant to the topic, and have suitable captions. OK
7. Overall assessment. Review complete, on hold for seven days to address criteria 1b Passed.
