This article refers to a planned ship that was not actually built.

ww2dbaseThe order for the construction of torpedo boat T60 was issued to F. Schichau Danzig in 1944, but material delays and then the advancing Soviet troops led to her never having been laid down. In fact, none of her eight sister ships were laid down, either.
