The Swift Boats were unique Fast Patrol Craft that were specifically designed for use in South Vietnam by the American Forces. They operated mostly in groups of three to five boats in order to control shipping and prevent Viet Cong supply boats penetrating the South Vietnamese lines. The main areas of operation were the Mekong delta and shallow coastal waters. They often also moved combat units of the U.S. Army, the U.S. Marine Corps and Navy SEAL Teams. The 15 meter long aluminium boats reached a top speed of 32 knots, were manned by specially trained crews and were fitted light but very effective weapons which included a 0.5 inch calibre machine gun and a grenade launcher.
