The TORPEDO BOAT pt-109 patrol entered service in 1942 in the Pacific. On August 2, 1943, the Japanese destroyer Amagiri rammed the PT-109, causing the patrol boat to sink. In a crisis, the unit commander and the future president of the United States, John F. Kennedy, managed to save the entire crew. The actions taken made him a war hero!
The patrol boat was manned by a crew of 12-17 people. The last mission was attended by 13 crew members headed by Captain Kennedy. The PT-109 was powered by three 1500hp (1100kW) Packard 12-cylinder gasoline engines. The speed of the boat was approximately 41 knots (76 km / h). The PT-109 had a single 20mm Oerlikon anti-aircraft gun at the rear. On the eve of their last mission, the crew installed a 37mm anti-tank gun in the bow. The main offensive weapon of the boat was her torpedoes. PT-109 was equipped with four 21-inch (53 cm) torpedo tubes containing Mark 8 torpedoes. It was also equipped with two depth charges and double-coupled heavy machine guns.
