Paul Lakowski wrote:Does any one know about the construction of these minesweepers? I read in Groner’s volume's that these ships had armored steel installed in the bridge plus chine reinforced hulls? They basic construction was welded steel and had a dozen water tight compartments and like more traditional German warships also had 'light alloy superstructure'. The only thing that’s missing to make them Warship construction grade would be mention of STS 52 being used.
Given the normal German pretence to over engineer these warships, I'm inclined to consider their construction in the same category as warship construction, like Destroyers or torpedo boot.
Does any one have any more details on their construction?
