No.28 Class Subchaser from Above
Here we see a No.28 Class Subchaser, seen from above. The US Recognition magazine called it a development of the PC13 class, estimated that it was 200ft long, 24ft wide, displaced 300 tons, carried one 3in/ 0 cal dual purpose gun forward of the bridge, two depth charge racks and two depth charge throwers, with an estimated speed of 16-20 knots. The real length was 160ft 9in at the water line and displacement 420t, but otherwise these figures were fairly accurate.
