Designed by British company Vospers, this Motor Torpedo Boat (or MTB) 73' type was used extensively by the Royal Navy Coastal Forces from the channel to the Mediterranean.
These 73-foot boats came about in 1943 from a requirement that British MTBs should be better able to fight other small craft, which was generally the job of the larger motor gunboats (MGB).
Equipped with four 18-inch torpedo tubes as their major offensive armament along with Oerlikon 20 mm cannon and some defensive armament (generally two twin Vickers K machine guns, one either side) for protection against enemy aircraft, they could pack a punch against enemy shipping
