- Notes: A slightly enlarged version of the Type 23 Raubvogel (bird of prey) class of torpedo boats, the Type 24 was also known as the Raubtier (beast of prey) class. At the beginning of the World War II, Iltis and her sisters formed the 6th Torpedo Boat Flotilla; Tiger was sunk in collision just before hostilities started. The rest were employed in minelaying and escort operations in the North Sea until the invasion of Norway, during which Jaguar was also sunk in collision and Luchs was lost to British submarine HMS/M Thames. Moving to the Channel in autumn 1940, Wolf was lost to a mine off Dunkirk at the start of 1941. The 6th Flotilla was disbanded with the surviving Iltis and Jaguar joining the 5th Flotilla of Type 23 boats. On 14 May 1942 Iltis and the Type 23 Seeadler were both sunk in the Channel by British MTBs with heavy loss of life.
