Talk about the vehicle's armour. Note the most well-defended and most vulnerable zones, e.g. the ammo magazine. Evaluate the composition of components and assemblies responsible for movement and manoeuvrability. Evaluate the survivability of the primary and secondary armaments separately. Don't forget to mention the size of the crew, which plays an important role in fleet mechanics. Save tips on preserving survivability for the "Usage in battles" section. If necessary, use a graphical template to show the most well-protected or most vulnerable points in the armour.

Additional armament

Setup 14 x 533 mm Mk.VIII torpedo
Main article: Mk.VIII (533 mm)

Describe the available additional armaments of the ship: depth charges, mines, torpedoes. Talk about their positions, available ammunition and launch features such as dead zones of torpedoes. If there is no additional armament, remove this section.

Usage in battles

Describe the technique of using this ship, the characteristics of her use in a team and tips on strategy. Abstain from writing an entire guide – don't try to provide a single point of view, but give the reader food for thought. Talk about the most dangerous opponents for this vehicle and provide recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of playing with this vehicle in various modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Summarise and briefly evaluate the vehicle in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark its pros and cons in the bulleted list. Try not to use more than 6 points for each of the characteristics. Avoid using categorical definitions such as "bad", "good" and the like - use substitutions with softer forms such as "inadequate" and "effective".

History

For tactical and financial reasons, at the beginning of the 1960s, there were considerations as to whether the Bundesmarine could fulfill its task with smaller, and therefore cheaper, speedboats. In order to gain experience, several speedboats were purchased from abroad, which were different in their construction, propulsion and armament. In addition to the Hugin and Munin, which were purchased from Norway in 1960, two ships of the "Brave" class were purchased from Great Britain in 1962, which were named "Pfeil" (Arrow) and "Strahl" (Ray). Although these two ships were not identical in construction, they were given the same class designation. The shorter "Pfeil" had two Bristol-Siddeley-Proteus gas engines Mk 1270 and reached a speed of 50 knots. The "Strahl" had 3 gas turbines and therefore reached a top speed of 54 knots.

However, as with the Hugin and Munin, these units did not meet the expectations of the German Navy. On September 30, 1965 they were decommissioned and handed over to Greece.
