Some more german hydrofoils
Wankel “Zisch” 1945
Maybe somebody knows more about the
"ZISCH 44" torpedo carrier ?
Please look here
According to a section of this interesting report that Johnbr found, the Walther Werke at Kiel carried out a lot of experimental work with rocket propelled hydrofoils (in the form of hydrofoil floats with Walther Engines). They were able to reliably achieve speeds of 50 knots. They also carried out work on rocket propelled landing barges, but I'm uncertain if the two activities were linked, due to the way the report is written.
The floats were described as being fitted with three hydrofoils, two forward and one aft.
Landing barges capable of running up the beach, and in the example shown in the film, of clearing the sand dunes and coming to rest in a field of cows.
