Arnulf Radek was the third vessel of the Ensio Jaak Richard class of destroyers built by the Imperial Navy of the Confederation of Lavrunaria.

Arnulf Radek led a relatively short career. She participated in Lavrunarian Neutrality Patrols during the Fascist Crisis, capturing the French submarine NdN SM149 when it surfaced because of a control error off the coast of Tyartuu. Later, during the Franco-Lavrunarian War, Arnulf Radek initially patrolled the waters around Tyartuu, sinking another submarine before being put into Task Force 21 which sailed to intercept the French battleship François de La Rocque. In the ensuing Battle off Bermuda, Arnulf Radek formed part of the Diversionary Squadron under Vice-Admiral Veikko von Ljungman. Early in the battle, Arnulf Radek came under sustained fire from the French destroyers Le Rapide and L'Incorruptible. She was struck by multiple 138mm shells, destroying the forward gun mount and heavily damaging the bridge. At 11:02 a 138mm shell, probably from Le Rapide, set off her forward magazine and destroyed the ship.
