The Type 143A Gepard-class was a class of missile bearing fast attack craft (German: Schnellboot) and the last one in service with the German Navy before the remaining four operational ships were decommissioned on November 16th, 2016.

It is an evolution of the Albatros-class, the main difference being the replacement of the second 76mm gun by the RAM system. It is planned that Gepard-class vessels will gradually be supplemented by Braunschweig-class corvettes and to be replaced by a new class of corvettes in the 2020s.

The ships in class are named after small to medium-sized predatory animals; Gepard is German for "cheetah".
