5 tugboats


And as part of the original Yugoslav 1Q37 Sim report, Desert Fox indicated the 30 June 1936 fleet strength as:

G. Updated Order of Battle, 30 June 1936

CDBB 1(0)+0
MN 0(0)+2
CL 2(0)+0
DD 10(0)+0
SC 2(0)+0
TB 13(0)+2
M/ML 9(0)+0
MTB 60(0)+0
Subs 3(0)+0

I am trying to match up these, and in particular, where is the second light cruiser (Name, Springsharp?) which ten destroyers were in service in June 1936 and which Torpedo boats were in service at that time.

I have found the appropriate data for the Kornilov, the Durmitors, the Dubrovniks, the Skopjes and the Zagrebs. But I can find nothing on the Bespokornys – and while there is a listing for 12 ships bought from Nordmark at some point, there are only 6 Besporonoys.

If anyone can help me figure out the status of these, I would be most grateful.

If memory serves, the second CL was formerly British. I'll have to research to find more.

Edit: formerly HMS Curlew

Six ex-Nordmark destroyers were traded to Mexico in Q4/1936 for 40 MTB's. That explains the ten destroyers (six ex-Nordmark and the four newer ones)

In regard to torpedo boats IIRC I counted the old Danish ships as torpedo boats, the ex-filipino and the Italian built ships make thirteen torpedo boats. The ex-austrohungarian ships I can't recall if they were scrapped or they were going to be scrapped. I have no idea about the design of the two torpedo boats being built.

Thanks for clarifying that matter - I wondered if something had happened to the other six, but had no luck finding an electron trail.

And thanks to Brockpaine on the question of the cruiser.
