Sorry Erich-no info on that action, but is T-33 famous for any other action? The name seems very familiar... :confused:
"GARRY OWEN"-Traditional war-cry of the US 7th Cavalry.
"CURRAHEE"-War-cry of the US 506th PIR.

Not sure except the T-boots were used along with S-boots for evacuation of the eastern refugees and watching out for soviet patrol boats, mining areas, etc.

Erwin :

S-boot stands for Schnellboote or the German equivalent of the US PT boat or British MTB. German boats extrememly fast.

T-Boot stands for Torpedo boat. An upscaled version, flatter appearing than the S-boat. A little heavier armed for defence and could carry more mines.

Erwin :

Like I said the S and T boots as well as many freighters were rushing German refugees, civilans and troops to northern Germany. Can you imagine with untrained folks aboard warding off Soviet a/c and Russian subs and dodging heavy rounds from Soviet land batteries ? :eek:
