SMS Zenta was a small light cruiser for the Austro-Hungarian Navy, and lead ship of the Zenta class. SMS Aspern and SMS Szigetvar were the sisterships. Zenta was originally conceived for foreign cruise deployment, primarily to show the flag abroad despite the Austro-Hungarian empire having no great colonial ambitions.

The Austro-Hungarian Navy was the naval force of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The official name in German was the Kaiserliche und Königliche Kriegsmarine (Imperial and Royal Navy, abbreviated and better known as the K.u.K. Kriegsmarine).

The cruiser’s name refers to the Battle of Zenta or Battle of Senta, fought on September 11, 1697 just south of modern Serbian town of Senta (Serbian Cyrillic: , German and Hungarian: Zenta), on the east side of the Tisa (Tisza) river, was a major engagement in the Great Turkish War (1683–1699) and one of most decisive defeats in Ottoman history.
