The boats did not correspond with the expectations of the Swedish Navy. 

Sisterboats ex-USN "PT 10" to "PT 19" were delivered to the British Royal Navy as Lend-Lease-boats and commissioned as "MTB 259" to "MTB 268" for service in the Mediterranean Sea.

The Swedish Navy bought modern Italian MAS 500-boats as replacement.
