Not much is it? Apart from the fact she vanished in heavy seas, only one battered lifeboat left behind, and that a Soviet sub heard her break up and could provide the coordinates - and that her demise was officially deemed down to a freak occurence... well, I hope someone else can help...
Er, is this a good point at which to ask why some items refer to Munchen as a 'supertanker', others as a 'LASH carrier'? Silly jokes aside (footie pitches and mascara?), I wasn't sure that they were the same thing but haven't looked them up yet...
Hening Pfeifer is entirely correct in referring to the Munchen as a LASH carrier. You must remember that journalists and other media folk only know of three kinds of merchant ship - supertankers, 'ferries' and what they insist on calling "cruise liners".
LASH is an acronym for 'lighter aboard ship', a specific transport infrastructure. The vessel is in effect a floating dock which embarks lighters at port of loading and floats them out again at port of discharge. A LASH vessel would typically work between deep water river estuaries with navigable hinterlands.
Ta muchly, Noel. That was a good, clear explanation. I'm using it to find further reading on this (and some pictures) so I'm clear on the distinctions irrespective of future 'poetic licence' and other inaccurate simplifications by the fourth estate.
