Small Torpedo Boats (PTC, RPC)

Most recent update: April 29, 2015.


A total of 92 small torpedo boats were built during WWII, by 3 boatyards.  They were designated either PTC or RPC but there was only one design, which was 63 feet in length and 54 tons displacement.  Most of these boats were transferred either to Britain or to the USSR and used as crash boats: some of the British ones may have been passed on to other allied navies.  If anyone has any information on what happened to these boats, please send it to timcolton@aol.com
