Hi nuyt, jopaerya,

Interesting thread. The K-class gunboats were designed with High-Angle twin mounts (see drawing in this thread), but ultimately received low-angle 12 cm, similar or identical to the ones on the Gerard Callenburgh-class destroyers.

@jopaerya, does the second pair of photos also show K-3? Did you find anything on the German evaluation of the performance of these guns?

Hope you don't mind me asking, but I've always had a special interest in these K-class gunboats.

Thanks,

Visje

Hello Visje

Sorry I can't help you further , for the last 2 photo's I am not sure if they are from the K-3,
the two middle one's I know for sure because they came from a photoalbum from the K-3 from Ebay .

For the preformance of these guns , I have found little information from German sources .

Hi Jos,

Great photos! Makes me sorry I missed those at eBay :-)

Any info on board which of the three K-boats these photos were taken?

No, I have no idea witch K boat , maybe someone can recognise the Admiral .
Its Admiral Westküste, Otto Von Schräder. He had his headquarter in Bergen.
Picture posted is mots likely taken at Åstveitvågen naval base in Bergen between march 42 and aug.1943.
Added a photo from Åstveitvågen.
