The two boats on the background look like landing crafts (Marinefährprahm). It is possible the boat with the 75 mm is also a landing craft. :idea:

Hi Emmanuel,

When the navy-soldiers of a Marinepeilhauptstelle (MPHS - Navy SIGINT-unit) withdraw from MPHS Taormina/Sicily
to their new post near Rome, they used a few Fährprahm for their trip from Messina to Nettuno. This picture was
taken on one of these Fährprahm.

Best wishes
Rolf

Quite likely actually, 75mm Polish guns (license-built French m1897) were specified for these craft.
The enemy had superiority in numbers, his tanks were more heavily armoured, they had larger calibre guns with nearly twice the effective range of ours, and their telescopes were superior. 5 RTR 19/11/41

Clear images of diving in Krieg Transporter 12 - KT 12 said to have 2 7.5 cm F.K.M. 97 in Lafette C 39 - the gun is full of maritime organisms so it is not a metal in sight, but the form and mount can be perceived.

Note this KT had a gun different than for example KT 16

Hi Jos.

That zebra paint on deck might mean it is Italian - i am not aware if German ships in Mediterranean adopted that kind of identification.

It is also a bit difficult to perceive the ship form. It seems to have an elevated bow - i don't think image distortion explains all curvature, but those exausts seems strange.
