History

The Type 24 Leopard was one of six ships produced as part of the Type 24 Torpedo boat lineup or the Raubtier (Predator/Carnivore) class. All six ships were commissioned between 1928-1929 and were produced at the Reichsmarinewerft ("Navy Yard") in Wilhelmshaven. Using electrical welding for construction, the ships also features two geared steam turbines with three boilers to drive the dual 2.35 meter propellers. The ships contained 13 watertight bulkheads Originally, the Type 1924 was planned to feature 12.7 cm guns, however, after consideration, the ships were produced with updated 10.5 cm cannons. The ships were used for a surprising amount of time, however, all but one ship was lost before 1942.

The Leopard (the ship in game) was launched in 1928, and subsequently completed in 1929. In 1932, it was fitted with experimental 12.7 cm cannons prior to their use in the Type 1934 class destroyers. It served as part of the 2nd Torpedo Boat Flotilla. The ship was lost in a collision with the mine layer "Preussen" on the 30th of April, 1940.
