Grate photos, man!!! I've only had (from those) the one with "Regina Maria".

One thing strikes me. Thaugh blury, the photo of "Naluca" seamns to show 1 or 2 TTs behind the rear (main) mast. All the documents I have say that the tubes were removed from both "Naluca" and "Smeul". So eighter they're wrong or that's not a TT. What do you think?

Those look to me more like boats, than torpedo tubes.
The NMS Smeul did not have its torpedo tubes removed from what I read. At least it still had them in 1942.

Hmm, maybe, but I see the boat stored in front of the aft. mast (clearly above the deck), I'm refering at the low tubular structure down on the stern deck, just after that mast. Still you may be right...

I've read that the TTs from both boats were removed during the war (I don't know the precise moment). At least Smeul did not had any at the end of the war. A refference from 1945 describing its armament sais only 2x66mm(11pdr.)+2xMG.

What kind of warship was GETA II (or 11)?

Well, i don't read this topic yet. Nice photos. Someone could provide some extra informations about Naluca, Sborul and Smeul's armament in time? What was theyr role in ww2 if the TTs was removed? Our "torpiloare" acted as gunboats, or escort ships, or what kind of missions?

Thank you,

Iama
