On several occasions a Bv138 was dispatched to work with a U-boat for days or weeks at a time and refueled from the U-boat. Something the 138 could do as it used diesel. That site gives a good account of where and how they were used.
Could you elaborate on this? - 'days or weeks' - at sea? Even with optimally clement conditions - the refuelling of a
Bv 138 from a U-boat at sea - must have been a VERY RISKY operation. I'm not saying it didn't happen - but HOW OFTEN
and between which U-boats/Bv 138's - where and when? Rgds, Varjag
