Notes:  The Danish Navy decided to buy plans for these torpedo boats from Germany; TUMLEREN was built in Germany.  The boats were deemed to be so successful that the German Navy built nearly 90 of them, the so-called "A-type" torpedo boats.  Following successful careers, all three of the TUMLEREN class were scrapped in 1935.
