Between the two World Wars, several Military Navy launched programs dedicated to develop fast crafts able to perform patrol and attack duties. New engines and technological solutions were able to guarantee, compared to the First World War torpedo boats, improved performances and better operation efficency. The German Kriegsmarine developed the famous fast attack craft S-Class during the 1930’s. Among the most famous Schnellboote we can point out the S-38 version. Produced in 100 units, it had a lenght of 35 meters and a displacement, full load, of over 100 tons. Thanks to its 12 cylinders Daimler Benz engines the S-38 was able to reach a speed of 39.5 knots. Armed with two 533 mm. torpedo tubes, it adopted several types of defensive guns. Some of S-38 used the very appreciated 40 mm. Bofors gun. Captured by Germans during the first years of the War, it proved to be a very effective and powerful naval weapon, even more appreciated than the German ones. On the S-38 reliable tech base, the S-100 was developed some years later.

Among the various stipulations of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919 was a severe limitation of German naval construction. Small craft were not covered by these stipulations and resulted in the development of motor torpedo boats starting in the late 1920s. ?The design was based on a civil yacht which was, however, modified to be able to transport two torpedoes: the S-1. ?The evolution of the design continued until it reached, in its most advanced models, 35 meters in length weighing in at 100 metric tons. Even room for secondary armaments was progressively increased. The construction was composite, with aluminium beams and wooden planking. The characteristic ironclad deckhouse appeared with the S-100 model and was a necessary response to increased Allied air superiority and to the intensified low flying air attacks being flown. The boats were primarily used to attack allied ships in the coastal areas of the British Isles, but were also used for operations in the Mediterranean and Black seas, usually under cover of dark. Starting in 1943, after great part of the Kriegsmarine had been either destroyed or immobilised, these motor torpedo boats were among the few vessels still in the water and able to perform military operations, exposing them to a progressively increasing number of battles and the consequent grave losses.
