G.I. Joe

Tiger Shark is a torpedo-armed fast attack craft used by the Tiger Force to attack larger surface ships.

The Tiger Shark is built using the planing-type hull form developed for racing boats. It is small (30–75 tons) and fast (35–40 knots). It was designed to strike at larger warships with torpedoes, using relatively high speed to get close, and small size to avoid being spotted and hit by gunfire. Is is much less expensive than a large warship. Tiger Sharks are much faster, smaller, and cheaper than conventional (displacement hull) vessels.

Tiger Sharks engages enemy destroyers and numerous other surface craft, ranging from small boats to large supply ships. Tiger Sharks also operate as gunboats against enemy small craft, such as armored barges.
