List of Type U 127 submarines
There were twelve Type U 127 submarines built for the Kaiserliche Marine between 1916 and 1918. Only four were launched before the Armistice with Germany in 1918 and were subsequently surrendered to the Allies. The unfinished boats were broken up for scrap after the war.
