Ship project history: Large destroyer, designed by A C de la Loire as development of Dubrovnik. Under the original design it was planned to arm ship by 140mm/56 Škoda guns and 40mm/56 twin Bofors MGs, machinery was ordered to Yarrow. Split was captured by Italian troops on slipway 18/4/1941. Italians renamed her Spalato and made efforts on her completion under modified design with armament consisted of 5 single 135mm/45 guns, 5 single 37mm/54, 4 twin 20mm/65 MGs and 1 triple 533mm TT; machinery was reordered for Tosi. In 1943 ship was launched, however works were never completed (availability was been approximately 50%). After surrendering of Italy hull was 20/9/1943 scuttled by Yugoslavian guerrillas in dock at Split. Then she was captured by German troops, salvaged, however works were never restarted and hull was again scuttled at Split at evacuation of Germans from Yugoslavia in 1944 (on other data, hull was sunk by Allied aircraft). After war she was salvaged and since 1950 completed at Rijeka under changed design with US-made armaments and electronics.

Modernizations: 1980: only 1 boiler was serviceable (25000hp, 24kts).

Naval service: No significant events.
