I found the picture on this site of the Tifi-A Anton that was captured and renamed NB-11.

Here is a longer list of the "Tintenfisch" Anti-partisan craft I was sent some years ago. Does anyone have any pictures or information of any of the rest of these?

(from Groener ):
TIFI G=GUSTAV ex VICENTRICE (?), 240 tdw, in May 1944 G 232, in Sept. 1944 still operational at Dubrovnik.

TIFI J=JOT ex ELKA (?), 240 tdw, completed for the Oberwerftstab Admiral Adria 3.4.1944, later G 233, on fire & sunk 18.8.1944 by torpedoes of MTB E. of Spavici.

VIRGINIA (ex SYR 669?), built '40s Fiume Dockyard, 150 tdw, Sept. 1943 under conversion, later G 237. However, Byron Tesapsides, "Die Kriegsmarine in der Aegaeis im II Wk. 1941-44" (2008) writes that VIRGINIA (Syros no. 669), 39 grt, was used in 1943 as a Crete supply vessel and in 1944 as the KM G 237.
