Cost data on smaller KM ships/boats?

Post by TheMarcksPlan » 20 Oct 2020 14:46

I've been looking for cost data on the KM's smaller ships/boats but haven't come up with anything.

Specifically looking for Torpedo Boats (Flottentorpedoboote), S-boote, R-Class, and M-Class.

Also cost information for Siebel Ferries and MFP's.

Any help greatly appreciated.

I think it would be hard to estimate the actual cost of an MFP, very hard to translate into Reichmarks and even harder to translate it into real prices. However, all the technical details could be found here (in German):

Regarding building times, the MFPs produced in Bulgaria were completed in 7.5 months, using 1200 working hours. You can also find the detailed infos for the materials used.
