Description

The CRDA 60t (1a), MV-611 is a rank III Italian motor gun boat with a battle rating of 2.3 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update "Starfighters".

General info

Survivability and armour

Armourfront / side / back
Hull40 mm (wood)
Superstructure15 mm (wood)
Number of section3
Displacement63 t
Crew22 people

With a crew of just 22 people and absolutely no armour, the MV-611 will not be able to survive much, if anything. As the battle rating of the ship is high enough to face reserve destroyers, this can become a huge problem, as they can easily one-shot you.

Mobility

Speedforward / back
AB82 / 31 km/h
RB61 / 23 km/h

With a top speed of 61 km/h (Realistic battles) or 82 km/h (Arcade battles), it certainly isn't the slowest ship around. You can keep pace with quite a few torpedo boats and leave sub-chasers and other patrol craft in the dust. Rudder shift time is quite good and it can turn easily. In terms of manoeuvrability, it's definitely a "light gunboat".

Armament

Primary armament

6 х Turret20 mm/65 Breda anti-aircraft gun
Ammunition1500 rounds
Belt capacity12 rounds
Fire rate240 shots/min
Vertical guidance-10° / 90°

The MV-611 has 6 x 20 mm Breda autocannons, seen on Italian ships all the way from the reserves. They have tiny clips, a low rate of fire, and don't inflict a lot of damage. On the plus side, they reload extremely fast and their positioning allows you to use at least 3 guns on any surface or air target, depending on their direction. The fast reload time can allow you to dish out an almost unending stream of bullets downrange.

Usage in battles

The MV-611's playstyle is incredibly dependent on the match's top battle rating - when it is top tier, it can easily shred through the small, wooden hulled boats of 1.3-1.7 with its 6 autocannons, but when uptiered to 3.3, it becomes next to useless against the mighty destroyers, as the guns lack the damage to sink one in a short enough time. Your best bet is to take out the destroyer's main armaments and run away before he repairs. Overall, the MV-611 can be incredibly fun or incredibly stressful, depending on the match.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • 6 x 20 mm Breda autocannons
  • Decently fast
  • When downtiered, can perform exceptionally


Cons:

  • No armour whatsoever
  • Can face destroyers and is hopeless against them


History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the ship in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the ship and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Ship-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the ship's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).

Media

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
