What is it that you are refering to when using the term "milkcow"? I am unfamiliar.

A re-supply sub. Good for resupplying food, ammo, fuel, etc.

An interesting site with a lot of information.

Does anyone know if the term was applied by the British or Americans or if there was an equivelant German word for it (and what's that word)?

The word "MilchKuh" (Milk Cow) was the german sailors slangword for the Type XIV, I guess the british and US Navy just called them targets http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
