Ship project history: Landing ferries-catamarans, the project of Lüftwaffe colonel Siebel, built also under Lüftwaffe control. Hull consisted of two pontoons from standard bridge parks bridged by steel deck with wooden flooring. Each pontoon could be transported by railway platform. Ferries had folding three-section access ramp. CT was protected by 10mm armour. There were special modifications: hospital ship, command ship, repair ship, gunship, AA ship.

Modernizations: Many ferries were rearmed for AA role, fire support and minelaying.

Naval service: Fate of many ferries is unknown.
