Re: SGBs in combat.

Hello.
On the forums I read that SGBs sank 6 enemy ships. But I found only four - "TOURQUISE" and R-41 18.06.1942, V 1501 27.09.1943 and V 241 09.08.1944. What were the other ships sunk? Or they were not?

Actions SGBs 1942-1945

1. Night 9/10 July 1942 SGB-4 and -8 conducted battle against R-boats. How is it that SGB-4 was rammed one of them for a long time was under repair?
2. The night of 26 July 4 SGBs attacked two German patrol trawler. Why SGB-3 withdrawn in tow?

Help determine the cause of death of the MGB-17. Some sources say that he was killed by a mine 11/06/1944, others, such as Rover, argue that it was sunk by artillery E-boat S-171. Where did it happen?

Help to learn more attacks MTB 298 and 276 of the German cruiser Niobe December 22, 1943 near the island of Silba. He could not find any English description nor fleet nor the names of the commanders. In Italian, German and Croatian sites describe in detail only the actions of the German forces.
