Naval Action on Lake Tanganyika

Baron Dhanis

The Belgians had the components for a large steamer, Baron Dhanis, which would have been considerably larger than either Kingani or Hedwig von Wissman. However, they did not dare to start construction on her while the Germans patrolled the lake for fear that she would destroyed before she could be launched. She was assembled once Allied control of Lake Tanganyika was assured.
