Conway's lists four MTBs of the Dutch type in Romanian service. This is incorrect, isn't it? I'm guessing the confusion was caused by reusing the names Viforul and Vijelia. Were all of these boats taken by the Soviets? Can anyone give their Soviet names?
I'll have more questions after this, I'm sure.

Now I have a question regarding the hull numbers assigned to Romanian boats. Videnia and the other ex-Dutch boats were numbered 4-9. Presumably the British-built Viforul, Vijelia, and Viscolul were numbered 1-3, but can anyone say which boat had which number?

Was the cupling that was missing ever fixed (Axworthy)? did the Dutch boats ever get above 25kn?

The boats have delayed long enough in The Shipyard of Galatzi, but when they were fitted with all important devices, they were able for some missions. That coupling appears to be engines-to-propellers.
The soviets reported for these seized boats a speed of 34, but for romanians only 30.
