Ersatz Meteor
In 1938, construction began on a new ship to replace the old Meteor, a modified gunboat of WW1. Like her predecessor, she would serve as a survey ship and also as fishery protection vessel. However, construction wise, she would be a minelayer. She was armed with three 105mm singles, two 37mm twins and two 20mm singles. She would have the capacity to carry around 170 mines. The ship was panned to be completed in 1940, but with the outbreak of the war, she was cancelled in October 1939. She was broken up and her materials used in other projects.

Very interesting!
But are You sure that shafts had no supporting elements?

There weren't any support elements that I'm used to draw, but on a second look there appear to be a connecting element. I updated the picture.
