Ship project history: Small wooden-hulled launches, differed mainly with type of installed petrol engines. Presumably, they were bought by Republican fleet at private boatbuididers of the USA and France in 1937-1938 and were armed in Spain. They received index DAR with two digits (the first digit designated a boat serial number, second the flotilla number).
After 1939 survived DAR boats were commissioned by Nationalists and received new indexes LAS.

Modernizations: None.

Naval service: No significant events.
