Please help to ID two ships in these photos:

#1. Minesweeper with Wolfsangel rune, what model or type is this? Photo has a caption - Port of Preveza.
#2. What vessel is this? Could be Pionierlandungsboot or PiLb 39 landing craft? Photo was taken in Crimea.

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,
Alexander

Hi all,

An image from Ebay. I think this ship is, probably, Schlesien, Schleswig-Holstein or Hannover battleship....Any opinion ?

Hi Peter,

Well, It is possible also... :) I think it is a post-WWI era image...Looking more closely you can see the main foremast crowned by the telemeter shorter than in the Hannover or the Schliesen once modernized, I guess this is a difference with the Deutschland class battleships ...
Is this correct ?

It´s definitly a BRAUNSCHWEIG - class battleship and I think its HESSEN between 1931 (only 12 x 17 cm) and 1934 (rebuilt).
