A series from 4 torpedo boats (Z1-4) was ordered in 1914 to German Vulkan. With the beginning of the First World War ships have been requisitioned and commissioned by Kaiserliche Marine as V105-108. Instead of them new ships were ordered to Dutch shipbuilders under the same design, received former numbers Z1-4. Later Z5-8 were ordered under the modified design. These torpedo boats were intended for service in colonies and differed by structure and type of machinery. If 1st series ships had 3 water-tube boilers with mixed coal-oil combustion and 2 AEG-Vulkan steam turbines, 2nd series ships were equipped with outdate cylindrical boilers with mixed fuel combustion and VTEs. One, twin, torpedo mount placed aft, and two single were installed aside behind forecastle break, as on German contemporaries.
To the Second World War beginning Z3 was considered become outdated and was used as training and patrol ship. Z3 was destroyed by crew at Enkhuizen 14.5.1940 to avoid capture by Germans.
