WHAT DOES E-BOAT MEAN IN ENGLISH?

E-boat

E-boat

E-boats was the designation for fast attack craft of the Kriegsmarine during World War II. It is commonly held that the British used the term E for Enemy. The S-boat was a very fast vessel, able to cruise at 40 or 50 knots, and its wooden hull meant it could cross magnetic minefields unharmed. It was better suited to the open sea and had substantially longer range than the American PT boat and the British Motor Torpedo Boat. As a result, the Royal Navy later developed better matched versions of MTBs using the Fairmile 'D' hull design.
