Announcements _

With the Closed Beta Test of Naval forces coming soon,
it is only logical to introduce another of the upcoming Royal Navy beauties.

We would like to present to you the Fairmile C motor gun boat - the older brother of Fairmile D, already presented to you in a past devblog.

The Fairmile C was a motor gun boat of the Fairmile family - designs, that were based on prefabrication of individual components so that they could be produced by smaller factories and then reassembled as a kits in different boatyards. The Type C re-used an improved hull from the Fairmile A Motor Launch - small vessel made of mahogany and plywood, that were initially used for anti-submarine escorts and as a minelayers. 24 type C boats were built in total, some of which have survived until today.

The hull of the Fairmile C was 110 ft (35m) long and 17 ft (5.3m) wide, with a displacement (weight) of 72 tons. It was powered by three supercharged Hall-Scott Defender petrol engines with a maximum of 900 horsepower, granting the ship a maximum speed of 26.5 knots (about 50 km/h). The crew consisted of 16 sailors (14 + 2 officers).
