"(I'm building a model of PT-495 - who, along with) her squadron mates are the ones that throttled the IJN battlewagons at Surigao Strait." On which Donny then further elaborated: "...The (USN) DD's and PT's were to shoo the two (IJN) battleships (Fuso and Yamashiro) into the waiting guns of the USN battle line. And...The DD's apparently did just that...
The PT's however...'numbering in the hundreds' (were) making willy-nilly attacks all in the name of 'just because' and 'because they are there'..." (and so managed to sink Fuso, with numerous torpedo attacks)."
Again, I'll let Donny edit/summarize the above, but I think you get the idea - as distinct from the "conventional wisdom" that it was the DDs' torpedoes, and only the DDs', which not only hit Fuso but broke her in two, the halves going down separately, up to many hours later.
