Did the Kriegsmarine use any kind of torpedo trolly for dockside handling of torpedoes? Or for that matter, the Luftwaffe, for transporting and loading torpedoes on aircraft? I already Googled this and inquired on Aeroscale with no results. I would like to make a dio concerning arming a Seehunde on the dock.

Good question Biggs! Funny, I don't recall noticing any sort of trolley or cart for the torps...but then again, I wasn't looking!

Not sure if any of this will help, but...







I am sure there are more out there...maybe track down the name of the cart(s) and start there.

Sorry it's a bit late but I only stumbled across this yesterday in a copy of Flugzeug Classic:
