Torpedo Boat Simulation

General Quarters! Man Your Battle Stations!

Take the helm of one of the most daring vessels of the World War II era, as you command the highly maneuverable PT-109. Originally designed to be an effective means of protecting shorelines from enemy assault, PT-109 is a versatile fighting machine that can range over large areas if necessary. As skipper of PT-109 you will embark on dangerous missions in the Pacific Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. And the enemy is not confined to the sea; it will require skillful strategy and optimum usage of your full arsenal of weapons to successfully complete a patrol or a full campaign. Engage in action in the Solomon Islands during the period that the actual PT-109 skippered by then Lieutenant (jg) John F. Kennedy was active and lost. Since the enemy consists of 12 different kinds of ships plus airplanes, if the action gets to be more than you can handle alone, radio for assistance from friendly PT boats or planes. Experience the excitement and action of these historical battles in PT-109!
