This was on our "Suits On Tour" Tour of Belgium. They have been left to rot on the side of a river bank. It has been used as a drug den and is in a bit of a bad shape.

History From:

http://jalbum.net/en/browse/user/album/1433998

PATROL BOATS

Royal Danish Navy Fast Patrol Boats

SØHESTEN (Sea Horse) P513 (1966-1990) & SØHUNDEN (Sea Dog) P514 (1966-1990)

Propulsion:

3 Rolls Royce Marine Gas Turbines - 12,750 Hps.

2 General Motors Diesel Engines - 460 Hps.

3 Propellers

Speed :

54 knots (gas turbines)

10 knots (diesel engines)

Armament :

1-2 ea 40 mm Machine Gun Mk M/48 LvSa (2x1)

2-4 ea 533 mm Torpedo Tubes (4x1)

2 ea Illumination Rocket Launcher (on forward gun)

10 ea mines could be carried in stead of the torpedo tubes

After the mid 1980's, the aft 40 mm was permanently replaced by:

1 ea 20 mm Machine Gun Mk M/42 LvSa

Complement:

27 men (5 officers and 22 ratings and enlisted)

The FPB could be equipped as a torpedo boat with one forward gun and four torpedo tubes, or as a gun boat with two guns (forward and aft) and only two torpedo tubes.



















Thanks For Looking!
