Ship project history: A 400t destroyer was ordered in 1912 from Stabilimento Tecnico Triestino, Austria-Hungary. Launched in 1913, named Lung Tuan, completed and ready for delivery in 1914, she was seized by the Austrian Navy on 28 August 1914 and renamed Warasdiner. She was a prototype for 12 destroyers ordered in 1913 at STT to be delivered by 1916. None of them was laid down.
