The kuk SMS Sperber / Kukuk class was designed by German Schichau on base of German S7 design, the first boats built at Schichau. More boats were built in license in Triest and Pola as Gaukler/Sperber/Kibitz classes. Most survived the war. Some were passed to Jugoslavia as Minesweepers. So for example SMS Uhu/Tb36 as minesweeper D2. 1941 it was captured by Italy, in Italian service as D10. 1943 it was captured by Germany and was used as Patrol boat D10.

The shape differed from the model picture as after 1910 all boats of the classed became 2 stakes.
