The first real destroyers of the Norwegian Navy, not enough yield in the sizes and armament structure to foreign destroyers. Building was approved in 1938. Basis for designing was design of Sleipner class, and in spite of on twice larger displacement, the destroyer had almost indistinguishable from prototype outline profile. All artillery should be delivered by Bofors.
To the beginning of the German intrusion ships were on slipways and yet had no names. After occupation of Norway Kriegsmarine has decided to finish these ships for itself, having appropriated to them numbers ZN4 and ZN5. This invention has gone out nothing, as works were sabotaged by the personnel of shipyard. Hulls were launched but after that works were actually stopped.
Further fate of ZN5 is unknown. ZN4 after country liberation have decided to finish building and even received a name, but works have not started, and in 1950 completion have cancelled.
