Request - Goeben's Torpedoes in '39

6 posts in this topic

Currently, we're making the assumption that she still carries her G/6 torpedoes from WWI, but...it seems likely that she was updated during her rebuild. Maybe?

We don't have any information on it, and English sources are somewhat lacking- anyone definitively know?

Thanks!

/me frantically searches for evidence Goeben was secretly refitted with Type 95's through a clandestine alliance with Imperial Japan...

Sorry,

Yavuz carries no torpedoes, unless it's for decoration.  According to Battleships and Battle Cruisers 1905-1970, her bow and stern torpedo tubes were removed during the 1926-1930 refit.

> G/6

main KaiserMarine capship(later classes) was G7

>refit

half tubes removed in '30, retained still 500mm

avail:

-500mm is very nonstandard caliber(turk stdt was 450)

-only 500 ones turkey had was G7(Goeben) and G6D(Breslau)

~up to '18 turkey somehow managed into producing trace quantities of some Schwartzkopf-based torps

-after civil war ('22) they switched to 533 on new constr

We believed that she carried the G/6 on her trip to Turkey, but could be wrong about that.

It appears that she retained her port and starboard launchers, even after the refit. The fore and aft ones were removed, however.

Thanks!

First: Your hard stuff jpg isn't working, it seems.

Second: Why always popcorn?
