The 1TMs were standard tankers. The design was developed by the Ministry of Communications, with assistance from the Navy Ministry, early in 1942, and was based on uniform specifications adopted by several yards prior to the war. They were not significantly different from peacetime designs developed in the 1930s and were intended for economical use after the war.
