Early torpedo boats.
Motor Torpedo Boats were developed and used for "hit and run" style operations.
It led to the "destroyer" that we love and hate!

Personally I think that the Torpedo Boat Destroyers and destroyers should not be conflated.

TBDs had one real job, a destroyer was a very multirole ship.

 

TBDs protected from MTB with a secondary very limited capability against larger vessels

destroyers as we all know do a lot more

This guy is super easy to listen to. Must've been scary to ride a torpedo boat, there's like nothing to protect you if the enemy hits back at you! Must've been very bouncy too if it was on top of the water- it makes sense they couldn't aim well.
