German ship lost after airplane attack 4 april 1943 at position N 63 10 E 07 02.
"mothership" for German uboats i have heard?
Can anyone verify this, or have the full story of her?
I know the wreck of her still rest at twenty to forty meters outside Vevang i Norway, but not the background of the vessel...

Pictures? Websites with info?

Hi ERIK & AXEL!

I could offer a sketch of ALTAIR, printed in Jung/Maass/Wenzel, Tanker und Versorger der deutschen Flotten 1900-1980, and a picture of WURI, ex ALBIREO, - a very similar sister ship of ALTAIR - printed in Baasch, Handelsschiffe im Kriegseinsatz.

Greetings from Austria
