Re: WWII German Destroyers
I can find no mention of reloads and with a photo in KOOP AND SCHMOLKE showing reloading i do not think it likely that it would be attempted at sea!
I understand that the German WWII destroyers carried 4 reload torpedoes. From Z23 onward, they were stowed in metal lockers alongside each bank of torpedo tubes, one locker on each side. Does anyone know where they were stowed on the earlier ships (Z1 - Z22)? Or if the earlier ships actually carried any reloads?
The only place I can think of is in the casing that the torpedo tubes were mounted on.
