The FriedrichFiles - My questions on Romanian ships

Mariupol ex-Ion C. Bratianu (Soviet ex Rumanian river monitor) since when did she carry the 1944-armament? What did she carry as armament then?

VD 141 - 148: date of entry into service
minesweeper, Soviet TR 40-type, purchased in 1955-60 in Poland, completed by 1960 in Romania

The Soviet/Romanian-built (? Is this why Weyer states something else as Conway ?) T 301 class minesweepers had an armament of 2x 3,7 cm; 2x 1,45 cm; 18 mines (as Weyer 1984 and other volumes say) or 2x 2,0 cm; 4x1,27 MG; _?_ mines (as Conway 1922-46 says)? Where to find photos of this class?
Is this list true and complete?
