Deans Description of the kit

Following the design of the SGB and its shortcomings, The Admiralty working in conjunction with British power Boats designed a MGB to fill similar duties but with the simpler construction than that of the SGB design.
In 1941 the type 74 design was produced with similar lines to the 1938 PV design but with a considerably stronger structure. This batch is based on one of this group commanded by Lt Cmd Hitchens of “E Boat alley” fame.
The success of this design resulted in a second order in 1942 for the craft with order for boats from numbers 107 -176.
They were powered with 3 shafts x 3 Packard engines giving 4,050 BHP with a top speed of 42 knots in good condition.
Weapon fit was one 2pdr gun and a twin 20mm powered mount and two twin 303 Vickers or Lewis gun on pedestal mountings. She carried a compliment of 12 officers and crew
