US Sub Chaser World War I
1/74 Scale

PT100 $39.95 our price Gone - 16" long

The SC-1 class sub chaser had a displacement of 85 tons and a complement of two officers and 24 enlisted men.
The armament consisted of two 3-inch 23-caliber guns and two machine guns. Later on a depth charge projector
or Y-gun was substituted for the after 3-inch gun and it proved to be the most effective antisubmarine weapon of all.
There being no electronic sonar in those days the vessels were equipped with underwater hydrophones for detecting
engine and propeller noises.

By the time the First World War ended, 440 SC-1 class sub chasers had been completed and placed into service.
One hundred were sold to France and another 121 craft manned by American crews crossed the Atlantic under
their own power, refueling at sea from tankers accompanying or being escorted. The sub chasers in Europe
operated in the approaches to Britain and France and in the Mediterranean and those in the United States
combined with destroyers in operations off the east coast against the U boats.
