After approximately 20 years' service with considerable wear and tear it was at the beginning of the 1980's decided to replace the class by a series of new ships, and in 1991 the first two, Thetis and Triton, became part of the Navy, and in 1992 a further two followed, Vaedderen (the Ram) and Hvidbjornen (White Bear) followed at the same time as the old units of the Hvidbjornen class were phased out.
