The Räumboot R-41 is a rank I German minesweeper with a battle rating of 1.7 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.79 "Project X" as part of the fleet closed beta test.

General info

Survivability and armour

The R-41 is mostly wooden. Both the superstructure and hull are wooden. The wooden construction of the R-41 means fire is a tangible threat, and the hull will not absorb so much damage. There is no armour on the ship beyond its basic construction. However, the internal components of the R-41 are spaced out, meaning a good volley/ burst will not completely incapacitate the ship. The R-41 has a crew of 34, which affords some damage survivability.


The R-41 is slow. At a mere 48.7 KPH (30.3 MPH) at its quickest, it is not going to be the first ship into the fray. The turning radius is decent, but it will not complete a loop quickly.


Primary armament

Main article: 2 cm/65 C/30 (20 mm)

Provide information about the characteristics of the primary armament. Evaluate their efficacy in battle based on their reload speed, ballistics and the capacity of their shells. Add a link to the main article about the weapon: {{main|Weapon name (calibre)}}.

Broadly describe the ammunition available for the primary armament, and provide recommendations on how to use it and which ammunition to choose.

Special armament

Main article: WBF depth charge

Depth charges, mines, rocket launchers and missiles are also effective in skilled hands and can be an unexpected surprise for an opponent. Evaluate the ammunition of this type of armament and rate its performance in combat.

Usage in battles

Describe the technique of using this ship, the characteristics of her use in a team and tips on strategy. Abstain from writing an entire guide – don’t get try to provide a single point of view, but give the reader food for thought. Talk about the most dangerous opponents for this vehicle and provide recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of playing with this vehicle in various modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Summarize and briefly evaluate the vehicle in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark its pros and cons in the bulleted list. Try not to use more than 6 points for each of the characteristics. Avoid using categorical definitions such as "bad", "good" and the like - they have a substitution in the form of softer "inadequate", "effective".




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 big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article.


An excellent addition to the article will be video guides, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.
