German naval restrictions as specified in the Treaty of Versailles

Part V of the Treaty of Versailles dealt with all aspects of the German military, with Section II specifically dealing with Germany's navy and the restrictions put in place following the First World War. In total, the Allied powers allowed Germany's navy to have just 36 ships in total, with strict limitations regarding the type, size, and replacement periods for each ship. In addition to this, the Allies demanded that Germany surrendered over one hundred military ships (disarmed, but with all weapons on board), while a further 32 warships were to be converted for commercial use (this does not include the commercial ships also annexed by the Allies).
