Ship project history: Originally ordered from STT by the Chinese government as Lung Tuan in 1911, and intended to be the prototype of a class of 12 boats, armed with 2 76mm/50 and 4 47mm(3pdr)/50 Armstrong guns and 1 twin 450mm TT. Launched in 1912 the Lung Tuan was taken over by the Austro-Hungarian Navy on 28 August 1914, renamed Warasdiner and rearmed to Austrian standards. None of her sister-ships was ever laid down.
