Seeing as they were in WW2 and all, and were used to take out other ships as well with its 4 torpedo's, and 0.50 cal guns for AA. Some were even modded with a AP Cannon on the front.

Highly modifiable and fast, they were the scouts of the sea's so to speak.

Im sure many of you would have alot more info on this subject then I.

Torpedo boat arent gonna get in game~ WG say it

 

 

''Will there be torpedo boats?

No, they are not planned either, because of their unseaworthiness and weak armament.''

 

but to me they seem cool, more sneaky then DD :teethhappy:

Not much of a place for them in the game. PT boats aren't used in fleet on fleet clashes, only before or after one. Same as submarines.

 

And no, they're NOT scouts. They're light commerce raiders or light anti-shipping. Scouts would be submarines and DEs/DDs,

Okay, fair enough, I was just thinking because they just don't have torpedoes, they do have a single cannon and AA.

 

Cheers guys. (Yea I was more or less referring to calling them scouts as they are fast maneuverable little D bags :P )

Most PTs were constructed of laminated timber (bondwood). Usually no more than 10mm in thickness. And no deck space for torpedo storage - fire once and return to port.

Enjoy your floating incendiary coffin.

lols; well exceptions can be made you know, ie, the unlimited ammo (like there already is :P); set one on fire, and spot the enemy locations at night :P.

 

Well, thats enough of PT boats, got the No's, and the reasons, and im fine with that. (more or less got over the sub talk)

 

Now how to lock this thread :P
