Gruppenführerboot Petsamo 1.Transportflottille
« am: 11 August 2019, 18:15:14 »
Hello!

In this excellent document by Manfred Krellenberger on the UJ-2216, there is a nice photo of the trawler "Petsamo" on page 35:

http://www.manfred-krellenberg.de/media/634de4195c28d16effff8089ffffffef.pdf

She appears to have a shielded Italian 10cm gun forward and two smaller gun positions aft. The photo looks very different from the drawing of this ship in Groener's V. 8/1.

Can anyone provide details of her as far as dimensions (is Groener's correct?), armament and operations?

Thank you!

Hello Dave,

Petsamo main gun was an Ansaldo 65/64 gun, probably taken from the guns built for the aircraft carrier AQUILA

Fascinating! Were any more of these guns used on small craft?
