Description by Dave (PTDockyard) on Facebook: In 1944 the Germans formed an anti partisan flotilla in the Adriatic called the Tintenfisch (Octopus)verband. About eight small coasters, schooners and fishing boats were converted into semi-Q-ships, sailing in ways that looked like merchants but really packing some heavy firepower.

Tifi A (Anton) - former Italian schooner Stella Bianca ( White Star) had an armament of one quad 20mm, one 20mm Breda on the bow and a 37mm along with a mortar or two. None of these prevented her from being captured while in a small cove by two Yugoslav partisan boats, whose crews disembarked and attacked from the shore.

The Partisans towed Anton away and upped her armament to 1-2pdr, 1-37mm and 7-20mm, making her the "battleship" of the Partisan Navy. She was designated NB-11 and renamed "Crvena Zvezda"...."Red Star". She was later lost in 1945 on a minefield.
