TUFO Calibra “tubeless” tire question

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

TUFO Calibra “tubeless” tire question

I purchased a of TUFO Calibra “tubeless” tires at a good price from on of the ubiquitous British online mail order outlets. I missed the “tubeless” designation when I purchased them. They are 700x23 size. They weigh well under 200 grams each. I can’t tell from the box how they are intended to be used. When they say “tubeless” is that just a Czech Republic way of saying “open tubular”and I will need to use an inner tube? Or are these indeed “tubeless ready” and capable of being set up with tubeless compatible road rims using the correct valve stem, rim tape and sealant?

I appreciate any feedback from folks who have tried these tires.
