Dubbed the Kleine fähre (small ferry) the Siebel ferry would prove it’s self a highly useful and adaptable vessel.

Aircraft designer Fritz Siebel (A commissioned a colonel in the Luftwaffe) had been assigned his own Sonderkommando (special command) for improvising Luftwaffe invasion craft for Operation Sea Lion.

Colonel Siebel’s ferry used flat-bottomed pontoons that were squared off in front. In combination with the vessel’s wide cargo deck, this made for an exceptionally stable gun platform, capable of surviving even Force 6 waves.

In fact, the Luftwaffe mounted various-sized flak pieces on the ferries finding the 8.8 cm guns, in particular, well-adapted for this role.

The Luftwaffe continue producing Siebel ferries under its own Special Ferry Command (Fähre-Sonderkommando). Configured to serve a variety of special purposes, from minelaying to convoy escort, most would see action transporting troops, vehicles and supplies.

The Siebel Ferry comes in packs of two expand your Kriegsmarine fleet.

Preis: 30.00 GBP

  • Ich hoffe, dass das zukünftige Black Seas auch so viel Modelle und Unterstützung bekommt. Auf das System freue ich mich gerade richtig.

      • Jedem das seine, für mich ist Cruel Seas genau das richtige System gewesen und momentan das einzige aktiv Spiele. Langsam nehmen die releases ja auch etwas Fahrt auf.

        Nach dem Release der Regeln und Flotten im Dezember bis Januar war es dann ja bis Ende April relativ still, was neue Modelle anging. Es gab nur Schiffe in 1:350 von anderen Herstellern, die WG im eigenen Ship auf den Markt geworfen hat (um Lücken zu füllen?). Ich hoffe hier lässt WG nicht wieder Monate verstreichen, bis dann nach den 3 Wellen wieder neue Modelle bringt (April 2 Schiffe, Mai 3 Schiffe, Juni 2 Schiffe); insbesondere, da es quasi nur neue Schiffe für die Kriegsmarine und die Royal Navy gab/geben wird.
