PT boats were a variety of torpedo-armed fast attack craft used by the United States Navy in World War II to attack larger surface ships. 'PT' is the US hull classification symbol for 'Patrol Torpedo'. Higgins Industries produced 199 78 ft (24 m) boats of the PT-71 or PT-235 or PT-625 classes. The first Higgins boats for the US Navy were used in the Battle for the Aleutian Islands. They were also used during the D-Day landings on 6 June 1944.
