Elco manufactured a very large number of PT boats during WWII. Their line was “jump started” by borrowing heavily from PV70, a private venture 70 foot MTB made by British Power Boat in 1938.
A number of Elco 77 Footers ended up in British service as part of the 15th MTB Flotilla in the Mediterranean, and later as part of the 10th MTB Flotilla. One of them, MTB 314 was captured as part of the disastrous “Operation Agreement” off Tobruk, and served in the Kriegsmarine afterwards (it ended up being sunk by the RAF).
The British Elco 77 Footers were all second series boats, but carried a different weapons loadout than the American versions. They mounted the same 20mm Oerlikon at the rear that U.S. second series 77 Footers had, but also carried a British turret with twin HMGs, two torpedoes in British-made launchers and two HMGs mounted near the bridge.
As always, I recommend using the option for separate printing of guns.
