Hi there.

The answer is probably no but I thought I'd ask the experts here.

Was A 25 Pdr Pdr Ever On A British PT Boat?

My thinking is that it would be more a matter of greater recoil than a difference of weights between the 40mm Bofors and the 25 Pdr Gun/Howitzer. However I have read that the 25 Pdr was mounted on a type of landing craft and used as a gunboat in the English Channel. Has anyone ever heard of a 25 Pdr being mounted on a PT boat?

Btw, the 25 Pdr could fire so rapidly that many Germans thought it was an automatic loading artillery piece.

Thanks and cheers from PeterTareBuilder
