The Fokker T-IV was designed specifically for use in the Far East and the entire production run of 24 aircraft was sent to the Netherlands East Indies. Eleven were still operational, mostly in a training capacity, when war broke out in the Pacific. These were hastily fitted to carry three depth charges and used for local antisubmarine patrols, particularly around Surabaya.
