Project history

The twelve destroyers of the 1908 fiscal year were distributed amongst three contractors; in this year the Imperial German Navy switched entirely to turbine propulsion for destroyers. The most significant change in the layout was the new position of the three TT, the tube in the prominent break between bridge and forecastle being moved to the after part of the boat. From now on this obvious gap in the boats' silhouettes was narrower. In Some boats it was closed off completely during later refits, thus creating more living quarters.

Modernizations

None.

Naval service

V162 was mined 15.8.1916 in the Baltic Sea.
