Kriegs U-Jäger, Typ KUJ-41; Nr 1-25 - assistance request, please

Post by ArvoLV » 18 Dec 2019 07:47

Esteemed forum colleagues;

I am trying to locate some higher-quality images/photograhs, as well as line-drawings, operational histories, of the German 'Kriegs U-jäger class (KUJ-41)' of vessels; materials I can use to prepare some color illustrations of these vessels (a work-in-progress color plate is attached below). There are a few snipettes of data on KUJ-41 class vessels on the Internet - but not much, which I can use as suitable technical-illustration references.

On a similar note - since 1945, has this class of vessels been written about in professional journals/magazines/publications? If so, which ones?

Thank you kindly in advance for any assistance efforts. Am most appreciative of same.

regards;

ArvoLV

PS: I also posted my above query on the German-language Marine-Archiv-Forum.

What was the difference between the U jager and the vorpostenboot? They seem to look very similar.

Hi Roelie,

Vp-Boot were not designed as warships. They were requisioned "merchant/fishery" vessels.
Many UJäger were "merchant/fishery" vessels, too.

KUJ were designed as warships - with, maybe, future perspective of usage as "merchant/fishery" vessel.


Regards

Darius

Essentially the difference is not in the hull, but in the parts that have been put on the ship, is that a correct conclusion?
I have seen different drawings from a fischdampfer, a vorpostenboot and an u-jager. Comparing these I think this is the case.
Some of the Dutch archives have great drawings!
