As I understand it, the 1937 naval program included one cruiser, four destroyers, three subs, four minelayers, a training ship, twelve MTBs, and a drydock at Galaţi.
The drydock was built, and the subs Rechinul and Marsuinul were constructed there. Three British MTBs were purchased, but a license to build nine more to that design was never acquired. The training ship Mircea was built. Of the minelayers, only Amiral Murgescu reached completion.
There's a lot of interesting material to be discussed, but my question at the moment is this: what is the correct spelling for the one sistership of Amiral Murgescu that began construction? I have it as Cetatea Albă.
Feel free to add details or corrections on the 1937 program.

As for the 1937 program - was MURGESCU and ALBA the only ordered minelayers? Do you know when original contract was signed and how many ships were included?

I would like to also know who was responsible for the 1937 program - was it newly created Ministry of Navy and Aviation or Ministry of National Defense or Romanian Navy??

Thank you!
