The 12 torpedoboats of type "Norrköbing" (Spica II) were built by Karlskronaverv from 1971 until 1976. In the 80s the boats were reconstructed and converted to missile-boats with the armament as of today. In the 90s six vessels were reconstructed again and then got the indicators as "Robot-Båtar" (Missile-boats) type "Ystad".
