Mittel U U-boats carried 16 torpedoes and had various arrangements of deck guns. Some had only one 88mm gun while others had a single 105mm gun - but most had both originally. In 1917 some of the boats were refitted with a single 105mm gun.
They carried a crew of 39 and had excellent seagoing abilities with a cruising range of around 11,220 miles. Many arrangements from the Mittel U were also seen on the World War II Type IX U-boats when their design work took place 20 years later.
