With the destroyers of the fiscal year 1913, the German Navy returned - alter the unsatisfactory performances of the type 1911-12 boats - to increased dimensions. Considering the general political situation and the performances of foreign destroyers the switch to greater displacement and pure oil-burning produced very desirable results: higher speed, better steaming capabilities and better seaworthiness, increased action radius and increased gun power. Compared with the last big coal-burning destroyers it should be noted that oil-burning meant a remarkable reduction in machinery personnel. These boats were to be armed with a new generation of weapons: the improved 8.8cm KL/45 torpedo-boat gun and the new, more powerful 50cm torpedo.
1916 (temporary for experiments), V25: + 1 FF 33B seaplane, launched from platform installed on fwd twin TT.
V25 was mined 13.2.1915 in the North Sea, V 27 and V 29 were 31.5.1916 lost in action at Jutland: former was sunk by British cruisers, latter was torpedoed by British destroyer Petard; V30 was lost 20.11.1918 after hitting a mine during the transfer to internment at Scapa Flow.
