This article refers to the entire Hans Albrecht Wedel-class; it is not about an individual vessel.
ww2dbaseThe Hans Albrecht Wedel-class ships were small seaplane tenders with similar, though larger, design as the earlier Karl Meyer-class ships. Five ships were originally planned, but only two of them were completed: Hans Albrecht Wedel, which was launched in 1940, and Richthofen, which was launched in 1942. A third ship, Hermann KÃ¶hl, was laid down in 1942 and cancelled in 1944. All three of these were laid down by the F. Schichau yard in KÃ¶nigsburg, Germany. The final two ships of the five planned were never started.
