Project history

Albatros became the first attempt to create a specialised submarine chaser. The design was developed in 1931. It has appeared unsuccessful, and sister ship building have refused in favour of larger one (future Pegaso class). In 1938 she was re-rated from submarine chaser to torpedo boat.
