Notes:  The merchant ship PUMA was built by Bremer Vulkan (Vegesack) and launched in 1930.  In 1938, she (and her sister PANTHER) were requisitioned by the German Navy, re-named ISAR and LECH, respectively, and converted into submarine tenders.  ISAR served in her intended role during World War II.  Following the war, she was ceded to the Russian Navy as a war prize and was re-named NYEMAN; in 1949, she returned to mercantile duties as ARTSA.  Further details are unknown.
