From 1944-1959, the Comanche was an ocean-going tug in the U.S. Navy. It was awarded one battle star, for towing battle-damaged ships out of the line of fire to U.S. Navy facilities for repair, in the Pacific in the Okinawa campaign. From 1959-1980, it was a Coast Guard Cutter.

There is one tugboat built in the US before World War II in Turku. It has been involved in the Normandy uprising. Today it is a charter ship that can cruise in the Archipelago Sea. Its name is Famnen
