Only these ribbon reels fit into the Torpedo 14. The machine uses a 13 mm ribbon. However, the coils are much smaller in diameter than DIN ribbon coils.

The Torpedo 12 and its direct successor, the Torpdeo 14 (Torpedo 13 does not exist), look almost the same. However, there are a few differences. In the case of the Torpedo 14, the segment area for the type levers is straight, while in the case of the Torpedo 12 there is a curvature.

Another distinguishing feature between the Torpedo 12 and the Torpedo 14 is the line shifter. The Torpedo 12 has a small inconspicuous line shift lifter, while the Torpedo 14 has this circular line shifter.

I come from southern Germany and have been collecting historical typewriters for 10 years. I'm interested in the antique machines built before 1945. All machines built after 1945 are not used for collecting but for writing
