OK, this picture is here for a long time ...

But the correct category is:

Buoy/Lighthouse Maintenance Vessels & Lightships

If one of the admins reads this by chance!

Dornbusch (III) was a Projekt 872 (Finik) Class Buoy Tender built in Poland for the SHD (Seehydrographischer Dienst der DDR) of the former German Democratic Republic.

In Service 17.12.1978-03.10.1990. Then sold and subsequently scrapped in Holland.

Several sister were built for the former soviet union.

They were prepared for military service with four mounts for gun turrets. But I never saw one of them armed.

Best regards,
