Pulp Kriegsmarine

Page history last edited by Michael 2 years, 3 months ago

back to the Index


      After throwing off the restrictions of the Versailles treaty back in 1933, Germany has been busy building ships. The Gneisenau and Scharnhorst are the biggest current projects, due to be launched in 1936.

      Yes, we're aware that it's actually the Reichsmarine until 1935; we'd rather not have to rename this page fairly soon.

 

Vessels

 

Battleships

 

 

Panzerschiffe

 

     These are heavy cruisers, or pocket battleships.

 

  • Deutschland, Admiral Graf Spee, Admiral Speer:   very advanced, but their design was limited by Versailles treaty considerations.

 

Light Cruisers

 

  • Emden:  1925

  • Königsberg, Karlsruhe, Köln:   more late-Twenties cruisers

  • Leipzig, Nürnberg:  newest cruisers (in fact Nürnberg was only launched August 1934)

 

Torpedo Boats

 

     Either light destroyers, or corvettes.

 

  • Raubvogel class:  Möwe, Falke, Greif, Kondor, Albatros, Seeadler -- all dating from the Twenties

  • Raubtier class:  Wolf, Iltis, Jaguar, Leopard, Luchs, Tiger -- all dating from the Twenties

 

Minelayers

 

  • Drache:  dates from the Twenties

 

Räumboote

 

      Includes R-boats (a term used by the Allies in WW2), or patrol craft and minesweepers.

 

  • R-1 class:  16 boats, from the Twenties, 60 tons displacement

 

Schnellboote

 

     Various S-boats, or motor torpedo boats.

 

  • S-1 class:  by now, about 13 boats, all fairly new

 

Submarines

 

     Historically, none before 1936. For several years dummy companies outside of Germany have been building subs for Spain, Finland, Turkey, etc. with German crews, German equipment, etc. In the Pulp campaign, German subs can be justified (and have been seen); if Boulle can get away with it, so can the Nazis. See the Type I-A and Type II-B pages; we don't know how many have been built, when or where.

 

Artillery Training Ships

 

  • Bremse:  fairly fast, four 5" guns, not much armor, basically a big destroyer. Commissioned in July of 1931, this would be an excellent "send to monster island" ship -- since it's a training ship, probably 50 or 100 troops can be carried.

 

Radio-Controlled Target Ships

 

  • Zähringen:  a very old battleship stripped and filled with cork

 

Sail Training Ships

 

  • Gorch Fock:  brand new

 

Weapons

 

Torpedoes

 

  • The G7a torpedo has a range of 6 km at 44 kts (or 8 km at 40 kts, or 14 km at 30 kts); as a "compressed air" torpedo it leaves a visible trail of bubbles on the way to the target. Warhead, 616 pounds; cost 20,000 marks (about $7500 in 1934).

 

Mines

 

  • The TMA is a moored mine, which means that it is secured by a heavy anchor and a cable attached to the mine. The mine floats at the surface, while the anchor secures its position in the sea (maximum 885'). A single continuous rack along the port side carries all 30 mines. Warhead, 473 pounds.
