                   *) all boats of this class blev retrofitted with a second 20 mm Flak in its unique bow-fit after they were transferred to the Mediterranean Sea. At the surrender to the British on May 3, 1945 at Ancona at least "S 61" had a 3,7 mm Flak M 42 gun on the aft deck (see pictures "S 61" in Malta 1945), how far thge other boats of the class also had one, is not to see from the available documentation. Photo-evidence for that are not available to us.
