More info

Patrol Boat, Riverine, or PBR, is the United States Navy designation for a small rigid-hulled patrol boat, the most common craft in the River Patrol Force, Task Force 116,. These boats were used to stop and search river traffic in areas such as the Mekong Delta, the Rung Sat Special Zone, the Saigon River and in I Corps, in the area assigned to Task Force Clearwater, in an attempt to disrupt weapons shipments. In this role they frequently became involved in firefights with enemy soldiers on boats and on the shore, were used to insert and extract Navy SEAL teams, and were employed by the United States Army's 458th Transportation Company, known as the 458th Sea Tigers.
