Project history

Planned by the Direction of La Spezia R Naval Yd, an experimental type projected for re-using the Schichau-built machinery of the discarded 110S and 111S torpedo-boats (both launched in 1888). But this economy did not give good results; and, as the armament was weaker than in the Pegasos (only two small guns; the calibre of the TT lowered to 350mm from the 450mm of contemporary boats), this prototype was not repeated, even though Gabbiano gave reliable service.

Modernizations

None.

Naval service

No significant events.
