Six incomplete ships of the 1010t-class, the Le Fier
, Le Farouche
and Le Corse
were captured by the German Army in June 1940. Renamed to TA1
("Torpedoboot Ausland"), it was planed to complete all six ships, but material shortages and sabotage by French workers made this impossible. In April 1943, the focus was changed to continue only two ships, TA1
but even they were not completed.
TA2 was captured on 03.09.1940 and transferred to Nantes to be completed. The ship was about 95% completed when it was scuttled on 16.09.1943. Destroyed by an air attack on 11.08.1944, the wreck was scrapped in 1951.
