Pros and cons

Summarize and briefly evaluate the vehicle in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark its pros and cons in the bulleted list. Try not to use more than 6 points for each of the characteristics. Avoid using categorical definitions such as "bad", "good" and the like - they have a substitution in the form of softer "inadequate", "effective".

History

PT-565 was an Elco 80-foot class Motor Torpedo Boat of the United States Navy. It was laid down by the Electric Launch Company (Elco) in Bayonne, NJ, on 28 April 1944. She was launched on 20 September 1944 and completed and commissioned on 8 December 1944. 

PT-565 had a length of 80 ft, a beam of 20 ft 8 in, and a draft of 5 ft. The displacement was 56 tons and it was manned by a crew of 17. The ship was powered by three 1,500 shp Packard W-14 M2500 gasoline engines, turning three shafts; a speed of 41 knots could be achieved. The armament consisted of one 40 mm gun, two twin .50 cal mounts (total of 4 machine guns), and four 21 inch torpedoes.

PT-565 was first assigned to Motor Torpedo Boat Squadron Thirty-Eight (MTBRon 38), under the command of LCDR Charles A. Mills, Jr., USNR. BTBRon 38 was sent to the Southwest Pacific, arriving at Samar in the Philippines in May through June of 1945. The squadron was based out of Basilan Island, Philippines. The squadron saw little combat, except for August 1945 when the squadron’s boats strafed ground targets on Borneo.

PT-565 was placed out of service on 24 October 1945. She was then transferred to the State Department, Foreign Liquidation Commission in May 1946 and sold. Her fate after the sale is unknown.

An excellent addition to the article will be video guides, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.
