The Derzky- or Bespokoiny-class destroyers were built for the Imperial Russian Navy just before World War I. Nine ships were built for the Black Sea Fleet These ships were a derivative of the Novik, but were slightly smaller. These ships were popular with the Russians and effective particularly in the Black Sea, where the Ottoman Navy had no similar ships.
