While life is taking time with new job, family etc. Sporadically i've some time to cover-up some old things.
Re-reading some of my notes and collections of data, i found one episode we briefly convered but it's not detailed in Arctic:


20 March 1945 in Arctic.
Depth charges launched against sub U-997 by Soviet guard boat "Smerch", causing light damage.
I read/know she had support of "BO" /submarine chasers. It is known their identity? (could be interesting to know if they were project122, or it was a use for the lend-leased allied boats).

There was 9 BO in all in area, i know only 4 (131, 133, 135, 136). Which ships was with SMERCH and even how many - i don't know. Perhaps named four.

Sorry to bother you with another question so early, just that i found a bit an impasse for that question i tried to research/ask a couple of time and apparently few authors on tsushima.su got an interest for it (the action on April 1945 off Pillau).
If you've time, to take a brief look at my latest post in the forum ((http://tsushima.su/forums/viewtopic.php?id=3199&p=25 )), there are some hints/confirmation to at least properly identify the gunboats that engaged with the MFPs? Because i've not understood if they were BKA 508, 513 (and others) of 1125 class OR the larger MBK .
To know already this, it would be a starting point to shed some clarity over that fight.
(I see there are a number of documents pics, but i cannot read them)
