Notes: As the eight ships of this class were completed, they were sent in pairs to the East Indies in service. They were completed with four short funnels, but later altered with heights reducing from the first to the fourth. The first four had a range of 2,360 miles at 8.5 knots, and 670 miles at 20 knots; the last four had a range of 2,700 miles at 8.5 knots, and 750 miles at 20 knots. After being stricken, FRET and LYNX were used as targets, and broken up at Soerabaja in the 1930's. PANTER was converted to a dispatch vessel in 1928. The torpedo tubes removed from this class were later fitted in MTB's TM-3 through TM-21.
