PT Boats (Short for Patrol Torpedo Boat) were torpedo armed ships built for the US Navy in WWII. They were small, fast, and inexpensive, with high manueverability/speed but weakened by bad torpedoes, limited armament, and fragile construction. They could reach 40 Knots and displaced only 30-75 tons. ¨This replica is based off the Higgins PT-625 class, and more or less off the PT-658, the only fully operational PT Boat. ¨The interior is made to the best of detail, though the Engine room can only be reached by the EAS command chair. ¨Action groups¨1:Engine Toggle¨2:Goliath Thrust Reverser¨This replica reaches 32.5 M/s (63 KNOTS!), and with jet engine after burners… 35 M/S.
