The real Z49 was a Type 1936C destroyer in the Kriegsmarine, or rather would have been had it not been cancelled after the order due to a lack of resources.

The Z49 in the film is a...

...Tugboat called the Proteo with fake turrets and pyrotechnics mounted on it for the movie. During filming it was serving as a salvage tug for the Italian Navy, but in 2004 it was sold to the Bulgarian navy where it continues to sail today. Not advised for addition to the game.

Same class as in-game Z-46 (should be at least), may I add.
