Ship project history


Further development of Havmanden class, designed by Whitehead (Austro-Hungary). They differed by bigger dimensions and increased to three TTs number. Single-hulled. Arrangement of third, stern, TT in deck superstructure aft from CT became interesting feature.

Building of six boats of this class was planned, but five were completed only.
