History of the Alpha Patrol Boat
The ProBoat Assault Support Patrol boat, otherwise known as ‘Alpha boat’ was purpose built for riverine operations by American forces in Vietnam. Made of steel for maximum durability, it displaced at 36.5 tons with a length of 15m and was able to traverse 1.29m of water. It was powered by two 12V71 diesel engines of 430 horsepower each and consisted of a captain, radioman, engineer/gunner - a .50 caliber heavy machine gunner as well as a 20mm autocannon gunner.
