The series B-1 to B-6 were built as a result of payment from the British Government for two Norwegian coastal defence ships seized nearly finished at the builders in 1914. They were not laid down during the Great War as stated in the Gröner books. Due to severe difficulties to get steel and equipment the construction took a lot of time, but not 15 years (about 3 years for the first ones) The B-1 was launced in 1922.

The UC-2 had yard number 117 she was launched on 24.9.1929.
