Hi all,
i was just searching for this class of ships.
Surprise that i found just this Picture here.
My father served on especially this FL.B 539 in Holland until end of WW2 - i only have one of these Pictures here. Maybe he took these Fotos.
It was an air - sea rescue boat, with two modificated diesel engines. (here: first trys with turbouploading). Wooden corpus on steelframe, German type Seeteufel 5. I can ask for more Information.

greets chris

Interesting how the last photo shows a new 15mm Drilling with shields on the bow. The 15mm is missing the center barrel though.

As you well know. the Flugbetriebsboote were Luftwaffe, and not Kriegsmarine, boats.

Hello,

Can anyone identify this boat for me? It might be one of the ''Jan van Amstel klasse''. The picture is in a photoalbum I have. In this album there are also pictures of Delfzijl and Dokkum.

Too large to be "Jan van Amstel" class even with a lot of KM modifications, but it bears a strong resemblance to the "Minesuchboote 1916", some of which served in the Reichsmarine, Kriegsmarine and GMSA right through until 1950 or so.

I'd say this is fishery protection vessel Elbe.

Way interesting, it is amazing to me that I have done years of research on Kriegsmarine ships and still run into ships and types that I didn't know existed. the front end of this ship looks very similar to the f class ships, however aft of the bridge the ship looks more like a merchant. Nice looking craft, but probably not very swift. looks like a harbor defense ship, or make shift minesweeper.
