VT-74 | Torpedo Squadron Seventy-Four


Recommended Posts



Established as Torpedo Squadron SEVENTY FOUR (VT-74) on 1 May 1945. It never saw action in theater.

Redesignated 15 Nov 1946 VA-2B, it continued to use the old insignia until 17 April 1947 when CNO approved a new insignia for the squadron.

At the time the squadron’s insignia was approved, VT-74 was flying the SB2C which was nicknamed the Beast. Consequently, the squadron’s insignia took on the shape of a beast riding a torpedo.


Embroidered on wool.
