  TextEN  "Schnellboots", ordered in 1936-1937 to Fr. Lürssen (Vegesack) by central government of China for Yangtze in number of 10 boats. German designations were C1-10. Structurally they repeated German S2 with composite hull. Actually prior to beginning of Japanese-Chinese war only Kuai 101-103 (C1-3) were completed.
Building of C4-10 really did not start. The contract was ultimately cancelled by German party in August, 1939, and prepared materials were used for building of German MTBs S30-37.
