Is there any reason why the PT Boat costs 6 Points and the Italian MTB 7?

              PT Boat      Motor Torpedo Boat
Main          1-1                          1
ASW           3                            2
AA              3                            2
Torp          3-2                         3-2

All other stats are the same.

Did I miss any revision or is it just the favorism of US cards we see on other units as well?
The game also takes into account the wealth and production capabilities of a nation.  The U.S. unit in terms of cost will always be the cheaper unit when comparing two otherwise identical units in terms of capabilities because it is "easier" for the U.S. to produce and crew the unit then most other nationalities.  U.S. destroyers are some of the cheapest in the game.  German destroyers with similar stats are quite a bit more expensive.
Thank you for the explanation.
But since A&A War at Sea is based on a tactical level, imho such considerations should not matter.

If you follow this line, you could never win any WWII based strategy game as an axis player.

But I understand now why US Navies can easily be built in every possible configuration whereas other navies have to concentrate on their specific strengths.

No that simple US bias ;)

This has been debated for 5 years. We never got any official explanation or revision. Really both have been 'obsoleted' by the Vospers and S-Boat anyway.

The Marine Corsair and George kindled very similar concerns in Set 4. 

Basically, you can draw your own conclusions
