Built: 1955

Fate: Unknown 

 

Designed and built in 1955, the Rx was a prototype hydrofoil constructed to test the characteristics of different hydrofoil designs for the development of HMCS Bras d'OR 400. As a test vessel only, she was designed to be as simple as strength and seaworthiness would allow.
