You are confusing ships. The Graf Spee was a pocket battleship that engaged British ships in the Battle of the River Plate. Damanged the German Graf Spee was scuttled by its crew and the Captain committed suicide in Montevideo,
The Bismarck was of course sunk by the British Navy in the Atlantic ocean.

No, I am not confusing ships. Both the Graf Spee and the Bismarck were scuttled by their crews. Michael Ballard found no hull damage to the Bismarck, proving the crew’s claim that they scuttled their ship to prevent capture.
