PT Boats Unveiled

The Akella Website announces development of a new World War II naval simulator called PT Boats: Knights of the Sea (thanks Gamer's Hell). Here's a bit:
PT Boats: Knights of the Sea is powered by an improved version of the STORM 2 used in the award wining Pirates of the Caribbean. The STORM 2.5 engine enables the creation of unique special effects like ocean waves from explosions, tracing the tracks of various types of boats, illustrating the boats gliding, realistic collision damage, damage from assorted types of ammunition and so much more! Our close cooperation with 1С/Maddox Games, the leading flight simulator developers and renowned for IL-2 Sturmovik, allowed us to create historically accurate and detailed aircraft models.

so is this about pontoon boats?

PT Boats are patrol torpedo boats. Very fast and very light wooden boats armed to the teeth with deck guns, torpedoes, depth charges, machine guns, smoke generators, rockets, and (believe it or not) more.

Watching PT 109 gives the impression they are helpless, while watching McHale's Navy makes them seem like pleasure craft, but they were pretty formidable little boats that gave at least as well as they received during WW2.

All in all, a great subject for a game.
