At 09.28 hours on 24 Dec, 1944, U-637 fired a spread of three FAT torpedoes at a group of small Soviet warships off Cape Pakri in the Baltic Sea and heard a detonation after 3 minutes 44 seconds followed by sinking noises. At 09.49 and 10.09 hours, the U-boat fired two Gnats of which the first missed but 3 minutes after the second was fired a detonation was heard and then again sinking noises. However, the only ship hit was the MO-594.
