Torpedo-boats that run on the surface or awash and that are not submergible. All have means for placing, launching, or discharging torpedoes or are themselves the carrier of the explosive.
(1) Note. Torpedoboats differ from torpedoes in that they are manned and controlled by a crew while torpedoes carry no crew, are not designed for such purpose and are much smaller.
