Thailand Swift number T 21, a Mark II, circa 2007

      Jane's has always been very unsure about when Thailand received their PCFs. This picture would support the fact that the first two boats were transferred either in very late 1967 or 1968, as the last Mark I boats were produced in the late summer/early fall of 1967.
     This boat is the same generation (Mark II) as our PCFs 137, 138 and 139, that saw service with Coastal Squadron One in South Vietnam.
