Typical representatives of torpedo boat destroyers of the beginning of XX century, close on construction to German S90 class "seaworthy torpedo boats". Concerning date of renaming there is no common opinion, but it is the most probable, that it has happened in the end of 1915, in Chinese fleet list 12.2.1916 Chien Kang and Tung An were registered already under new names. Machinery was considered archaic already during building. On trials one boat has shown 36.8kts speed, however by 1937 they both made no more than 20kts.
Yu Chang (ex-Chang Feng) 21.1.1932 was wrecked in channel Nantung Chao in mouth of Yangtze; 6.7.1932 she was stricken. Chien Kang 26.9.1937 was sunk by aircraft from Japanese carrier Kaga on Yangtze at Jiangyin; in 1938 she was salvaged by Japanese, repaired and commissioned by IJN as Yamasemi; in December, 1939 she was transferred to puppet Nanjing government as Hai Sui; further her fate is unknown. Tung An in 1925 was transferred to North-east squadron submitting to Governor of Shantung, and was renamed Hsiao An, but really new name was used only by local authorities. 26.9.1937 she was scuttled at Tsingtao.
