"As a manufacturer of high-speed boats, the British Shipbuilding Company Vosper continued to produce torpedo boats even after WWII. Among these was the Perkasa, which was delivered to the Royal Malaysian Navy in 1967. It was armed with four 53.3cm torpedoes mounted on side launchers, a 40mm Bofors gun, and a 20mm Oerlikon cannon. It was powered by three 4,250hp gas turbines and had a maximum speed of 54 knots. In addition to the gas turbines, there were two General Motors diesel engines which were used for normal cruising and maneuvering. The Perkasa was used mostly for patrol duties until eventually replaced by missile boats."
