Ship project history: These UC III type minelayers were a considerable improvement on their predecessors, and had a diving depth of 75m. Two TT were sited amidships but were forward-firing. War orders S (UC80-118), V (UC119-152) and AC (UC153 and on). UC139-152 (KW Danzig) and UC153-192 were cancelled before were laid down.

Modernizations: None.

Naval service: UC90 was interned at Carlskrona (Sweden) 13/11/1918 and later transferred to Japan. UC91 sank in Baltic Sea after collision with s/s Alexandre Woermann 5/9/1918, salvaged next day, repaired and lost en route to transfer 10/2/1919 in the North Sea.
