H.M.S. Zubian was a playfully-named destroyer created by joining the forward section of the mined Zulu to the aft part of the Nubian, which had been torpedoed. The result was a serviceably spliced craft which one might call one of the "Tribals".

On 4 February, 1918, she sank the UC 50.[6]

In July of 1918, Zubian was serving in the Sixth Destroyer Flotilla, part of the Dover Patrol.
