Ship project history: Built at the Danubius yards in Porto Ré (Kraljevica) and Bergudi (Brgud), these boats were the Danubius version of the STT 250t boats and differed in the make of turbines and in having two funnels instead of one. Originally Danubius were to have built only four boats, but after having reduced their price by about 10% 16 boats were ordered.

Modernizations: 1917, all: - 1 x 1 - 66/27; + 1 x 1 - 75/27 G. L/30 K.16 BAG
