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 fire support and minelaying.

Naval service


Fate of many ferries is unknown.
