|1. Well written:|
|1a. the prose is clear and concise, and the spelling and grammar are correct.||OK. 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.||* Suggest changing the first section header to "Characteristics" (to conform with the approach on her sister ships) rather than "Design", unless this is something specific to a lead ship.
* Also, 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 "Karlsruhe was a German light cruiser that was operated between 1929 and April 1940, including service in World War II. (was she the lead vessel in her class? I thought that was Königsberg?) She was operated by two German navies, ..."
* I have a query about the format of the article title. According to WP:NCSHIP Karlsruhe should be italicised in the title.
* Also, the KMS in the infobox is not consistent with her sister ships (one doesn't have a prefix there, one has DKM. It was my understanding that Kriegsmarine ships didn't have a formal prefix, but that some authors use them. Perhaps it would be better to be consistent with the article title and drop the prefix?

|2c. it contains no original research.||OK|
|3. Broad in its coverage:|
|3a. it addresses the main aspects of the topic.||OK|
