Comments:
All build in Germany based on the Zobel class used by the German Navy. Can carry up to 4 mines.Their keel is made from light metal and have a wooden planking and aluminum superstructure.

P-325 TCG Meltem was lost in a collision with the Russian training ship Khasan on 25th September 1985. She was later salvaged and scrapped.

Although these boats are getting old they are still in service because they very fast and very hard to detect.
