The Marinefährprahm, commonly known as a Flak Lighter, was the largest landing craft fielded by the German Navy during WWII.
Although originally developed for the invasion of Britain, these boats served in a variety of roles, with a variety of weapons. They found use as gunboats, transports, mine layers and escorts.
Variants were also built by Italy, initially for the proposed invasion of Malta. Again this did not take place and the boats were used for other duties.
I have two variants here, both of the D Type. The first is the normal Marinefährprahm, which retains transport capacity. The other is the Artilleriefährprahm variant, which seems to have been a specialised artillery version.
