FDM is proud to know that this Motor Torpedo Boat PT-4 model will be displayed with pride in someone’s home or office. Motor Torpedo Boat PT-41 was a PT-20 (Elco 77-Foot) Class Patrol torpedo boat, built at Elco and commissioned on 23 July 1941. PT-41 served as the flagship of Motor Torpedo Boat Squadron Three, which was based in the Philippines from late 1941 to April 1942.


After MacArthur's party left Mindanao, PT-41, along with the two remaining PT Boats of the squadron (PT-34 and PT-35), established a new base of operations at Cagayan, Mindanao, supporting the American military forces defending Mindanao and the nearby islands from the invading Japanese throughout late March and early April 1942. After a torpedo attack in concert with PT-34 on the Imperial Japanese cruiser Kuna on April 9, 1942, PT-41 became the last remaining PT boat of the squadron (PT-34 was sunk in the aftermath of the attack and PT-35 was burned at Cebu).
