US Type of M1935 Class Minesweeper (Germany)

This plan from a US Recognition magazine of 1944 shows a M1935 class minesweeper, of which M-1 was the first in class. These were very flexible ships, desrbied by the Soviets as small destroyers. This plan isn't entirely accuratem showing a rectangular structure behind the funnel that doesn't match other plans or photos of the type.
