As part of my Project Weserubung I am trying to ascertain if either of the following Norwegian ships were equipped with depth charges?:

Minesweepers - Otra and Rauma (1939)
Patrol ship - Fridtjof Nansen (1930)

I can't find anything. They were all fairly modern vessels, with the sort of usage that would suggest that they might have had them. If anyone has information it would be much appreciated, otherwise they won't get any ASW value.

I know this hasn't been posted on yet. I looked and haven't found anything that shows any ASW. Even after the refits by Germany there was no ASW added.

Just checked Conway's. Got a zero on depth charges on all three ships.

The first two were captured by the Germans and were used as minesweepers. Weapons listed - one Bofors, 2 x 20mm AA, 2 x 13mm AA and mines listed as carried.

The Fridtjof Nansen is listed as grounded and sunk in 1940. 2 x 4-inch, 2 x 47mm, one aircraft.

If you are asking if the Norwegians ever fitted D/Cs to these ships I would suggest it is unlikely. If you are asking if the Germans fitted them to the two captured minesweeper then I would say that it is possible. Trap-door release of depth charges requires little equipment. The real issue is either fast enough to get away before the D/Cs explode?
