Notes: This class was a modest enlargement of D'Equevilley- Montjustin’s previous double-hull design. The U- 1 operated primarily as a trials and training vessel. It was stricken in 1919, purchased by Krupp, and donated to the Deutsches Museum in Munich for exhibit. The Austro- Hungarian boats were modified with fixed aft planes and no planes at the bow. They served extensively during World War I. The U- 3 was sunk by the French destroyer Bisson on 13 August 1915 after an abortive attack on the Italian armed merchant cruiser Citta di Catania. The U- 4 sank the Italian armored cruiser Giuseppe Garibaldi on 18 July 1915. It was ceded to France at the end of the war and scrapped in 1920.
