There are two types of this launch, a standard version and a lighter version. The information sheet for the drawings below state:
“This design was developed in 1935 to replace the existing 45ft Motor Launch,; the new design to be a lighter craft to be carried in reconstructed capital ships and to be within the lifting capacity of the aircraft cranes.”
