Project history

Ordered 9 December 1916 to a design submitted by naval constructor Eckert von Labin, only 3 of the projected 9 boats were launched, between July 1917 and August 1918 at the Pola N Yd; the 6 further boats ordered from Austriawerft were never launched due to material and manpower shortages. They were designed to carry 40mm armour, and to make 26.5kts at 24t or 24.5kts at 26t.

Modernizations

None.

Naval service

Mb107 was ceded to Italy in 1920 and was used by the Italian Customs Service until 1925; the two other boats were probably scrapped immediately.
