PT Boats

  • You need to play a total of 5 battles to post in this section.

As World of Tanks has it's super fast and maneuverable Scout Tanks, I think there would be a place for PT Boats in World of Warships. The cross referencing would apply the same straight across the board, or ocean in this instance. Fast..but vulnerable. The PT is a quick in and out spotter that can deliver minimal, up to devastating damage depending on the vessel attacked. Used in it's proper perspective, it can leave a Battle Ship or Aircraft Carrier sitting idle in the water, and maneuver back out of range unscathed while the rest of it's fleet finish the job it started. As a lover of Scout Tanks in WoT .. I would really enjoy seeing PTs come into WoW.

They wont fit into the PVP environment as PT boats were so lightly armored and full of volatile fuel that one hit from a secondary would blow them sky high. DD's already fill the quick nimble ships with torpedo role anyway. You would also be wise to search before posting as this has already been brought up multiple times and the devs have stated why they do not plan to include them.

Not even a secondary, the AA guns on some of the lowest tier ships that have them would.

 

If you like your scouts, play DD. rough approximation

 

DD = light tank

Cruiser = medium tank

BB = Heavy Tank

CV = TD or Artillery

There is a place for large torpedo boats at least, the V-25 being the only example so far. Going beyond that is just impossible. You are more than welcome to try out the other game which has only PT boats.

This subject came up before and the consensus was that they didn't play enough of a role to be included.

Scouting is mostly a DD/CV role although in a pinch a cruiser can do the job is no DD's or planes are available.

PT's/MTB's are creatures of the night and we do not have true night actions. They are also creatures of the near shore where the largest ships they would see were DD's. Now I think a World of Coastal Warfare would be great fun that is also a totally different game from what we have and doesn't mesh with World of Warships.

It appears actually looking things up before posting has become the true Unicorn.

Well, in the OP's defense there hasn't been a PT thread for some time and the forum search function is unreliable at best and chokes on short inputs like PT. The better option is to use Google and enter "World of Warships (WoWS will work too) PT boats" which will bring up lots of good results.

It would probably only happen as a April Fools or in Its own special game mode.You would be hitting a small sometimes wooden PT boats with some big [edited]shells.

Thanks guys, for "all" the input. I guess my next venture will be to research the faster DDs, and grind up the line to get them. Appreciate your taking the time to address this already tilled over topic, and your suggested remedies.

They won't add and it is probably a good idea that they don't but if PT-73 was the boat I would run that thing anyway. Especially if they managed to get license to use voices from the actors.

you have to pay to play but try Flying Aces high if you want PT boats, or tanks, quad .50's on a half track, bombers, transport AC or ground, take off and land on aircraft carriers, man field guns and AA positions, or shore battery's, fighters, attack aircraft, bomb airfields, factory's, armored formations or fleets at sea or man the guns on the ships from the main guns to the AA guns and you do it all with thousands of players on at the same time.

It is the best exp i have had playing on line games, formation flying with 120 bombers takes on a new level of fun as you head out to level a target and only picks up when the enemy fighter come to play and the flack starts filling the sky
