Medium submarine, built as private initiative by Spanish businessman Horatio Echivarrieta on own shipyard in Cadiz. Boat should become a production prototype for offered by Echivarrieta serial building for Spanish Navy. Project Pu111 was created by Ingeenieurkantoor voor Scheepsbouw (IvS) on a basis of German perspective submarine of UG type developed in 1918, but never realised because of Armistice. Building was conducted at active participation of Germans, and as basic subcontractor at building Wilton-Fijenoord acted. E1 gone out to trials in May, 1931 with German crew under command of A. de la Perrier. However Spanish Government refused her acquisition and building of this class, preferred to begin building of D type submarines of national designed. As result Echivarrieta since 1932 tried to sell E1 abroad. Among possible buyers the USSR was considered also, but as result in 1934 submarine was bought by Turkey for 9 million pesetas and named Gur. She was accepted by Turkish crew in Spain 27.12.1934 and arrived Istanbul in January, 1935. Saddle-tank hull, main ballast and fuel tanks were placed in a pressure hull. She was equipped by German armament and MAN diesels, and gun was installed on fin structure was atypical for German designs. Gur served as prototype for IA series submarines built in Germany and IX series submarines built in the USSR.
