[[File:X-RayImage StarboardView G-5.png|thumb|Profile shot of the G-5. The two engines sit at the bow and ammunition storage is tucked behind the bridge where the turret is.]]
The G-5 basically has no armour in its overall design, to the point where the only armour that lights up in the armour-viewer is the armoured glass at the bridge, an astounding 5 mm of it. As such, any small arms armament can penetration and cripple the modules and the two crew members.

The G-5 has no armour in its overall design, to the point where the only armour is the armoured glass, which provides 5mm of protection! located on the windows of the bridge. As such, any small arms armament can penetrate and destroy, critical modules and knock out crew members. The G-5 carries a crew complement of six, which are all located around the conning tower of the ship. Meaning any well placed shots with high explosive rounds or concentration of fire on this area, can see all the crew members knocked out and the ship destroyed!

The only gun on the G-5 is a single 12.7 mm DShK machine gun. It can destroy any motor torpedo boats and some larger boats if your lucky. Being located in the centre of the vessel it does have 360 degrees of aiming but is somewhat restricted in elevation when pointed towards the bow due to structural designs meaning it can only be reliably fired at other vessels when aimed at the sides or rear of the ship. You can research two different ammo belts for the 12.7 mm, the high explosive incendiary (HEI) and armour piercing incendiary tracer (APIT) rounds.

When playing the G-5 in Arcade battles, it is important to be aware of your team mates - since most vessels travel at high speed it is not impossible for your team mates to accidentally collide into you. When this happens, the G-5 is a small and lightweight vessel, it is possible when they collide in the heat of battle, that they can flip you over and you drown.

As with any motor torpedo boat, it is best to keep moving since a few good shots from other boats can take you out. While the 12.7 mm mount is flexible for a 360 degree traverse, its elevation is restricted in front due to structure obstructions. As such, the 12.7 mm can only effectively fire from the sides and stern of the boat. Because of this, it's generally a good idea to avoid direct confrontations.
 
  
That said, the G-5 is one of the fastest vessels in the game, almost twice as fast as other vessels similar in it's class. As such it is best utilised to capture points early, providing cover to allies with smokescreen, and sneaking around enemies and ambushing them with hit-and-run tactics with it's slightly faster and accurate torpedoes.
+
In battle, the G-5 can be compared to a piranha, its small size, high agility, resilience and being very fast makes it unstoppable in the hands of a skilled player. When engaging enemy ships, turn the G-5 into them, keeping G-5 profile, very small and hard to hit. Using the great high speed manoeuvrability offered, bring the ship along side and blast them with the 12.7 mm machine gun.
  
===Modules===
+
It is important to make every shot count, do not aim for open spaces, aim for areas such the bridge and engine room where the rounds from the G-5 will be able to cause alot of damage to critical parts and knocking out sailors on the enemy vessel.

Using the G-5 torpedoes, are more suited to bigger, slower and less manoeuvrable ships such as the following the class of ships: [[BMO]], [[165 ft PC-451]],[[SF40 Leichte]], [[Isles_class_(T-285)|Isles class]], [[Type K-3 / No.1 Class]] and other types which are similar to these. However, it is not impossible to use the torpedoes on smaller & manoeuvrable targets, one of the ways is to out manoeuvre the opponent, and turn into them and launch it allowing the rival to sail into it.

The G-5 motor torpedo boat, produced from 1933 until 1941, was developed from the Sh-4 class of motor torpedo boats. The unarmed prototype model of the G-5, designed in 1932, used imported Italian engines as no satisfactory Russian engines were yet available. The production model, however, used an adapted Mikulin AM-34 aircraft engine, designated as GAM-34. Its torpedo release system was based off of British WWI-era coastal torpedo boats that were captured during the Russian Civil War. It was also armed with a 7.62mm machine gun, however, later models were instead fitted with a 12.7mm machine gun, and it is this iteration of the G-5 that is available as a reserve boat in the USSR naval tech tree.

Still others replaced the 12.7mm machine gun entirely with a 20mm ShVAK cannon (Such as the G-5 (ShVAK), also available in the USSR's premium naval tech tree).

Despite their classification, they are not known to have been used to torpedo enemy ships very often, instead being relegated for the most part to more standard assignments such as landing units, transports, escorts, and the like.

Armament

Primary armament

Turret12.7 mm DShK machine gun
Ammunition2000 rounds
Belt capacity50 rounds
Fire rate600 shots/min
Vertical guidance-10° / 70°
Main article: DShK (12.7 mm)

The only gun on the G-5 is a single 12.7 mm DShK machine gun. It can destroy any motor torpedo boats and some larger boats if your lucky. Being located in the centre of the vessel it does have 360 degrees of aiming but is somewhat restricted in elevation when pointed towards the bow due to structural designs meaning it can only be reliably fired at other vessels when aimed at the sides or rear of the ship. You can research two different ammo belts for the 12.7 mm, the high explosive incendiary (HEI) and armour piercing incendiary tracer (APIT) rounds.

Additional armament

Setup 12 x 533 mm 53-38 torpedo
Main article: 53-38 (533 mm)

The G-5 carries two 533 mm 53-38 torpedoes. They have a range of 4 km at a speed of 82 km/h. With the Torpedo Mode module installed, they can reach 10 km at a reduced speed of 75 km/h. As both torpedoes sit in the aft pointing towards the bow, they are accurate and easy to aim with.

Usage in battles

The G-5 is a fast and manoeuvrable ship, with speeds up to 122 km/h in Arcade and 94 km/h in Realistic & Simulator Battles. The G-5 also offers excellent manoeuvrability, at high speeds compared to it competitors such as the PT, LS and others. The G-5 is one of the fastest vessels in the game, almost twice as fast as other similar vessels in its class.

As such it is best utilised to capture points early, providing cover to allies with smokescreen, and sneaking around enemies and ambushing them with hit-and-run tactics with its slightly faster and accurate torpedoes.

When playing the G-5 in Arcade battles, it is important to be aware of your team mates - since most vessels travel at high speed it is not impossible for your team mates to accidentally collide into you. When this happens, the G-5 is a small and lightweight vessel, it is possible when they collide in the heat of battle, that they can flip you over and you drown.

In battle, the G-5 can be compared to a piranha, its small size, high agility, resilience and being very fast makes it unstoppable in the hands of a skilled player. When engaging enemy ships, turn the G-5 into them, keeping G-5 profile, very small and hard to hit. Using the great high speed manoeuvrability offered, bring the ship along side and blast them with the 12.7 mm machine gun.

It is important to make every shot count, do not aim for open spaces, aim for areas such the bridge and engine room where the rounds from the G-5 will be able to cause alot of damage to critical parts and knocking out sailors on the enemy vessel.

Using the G-5 torpedoes, are more suited to bigger, slower and less manoeuvrable ships such as the following the class of ships: BMO, 165 ft PC-451,SF40 Leichte, Isles class, Type K-3 / No.1 Class and other types which are similar to these. However, it is not impossible to use the torpedoes on smaller & manoeuvrable targets, one of the ways is to out manoeuvre the opponent, and turn into them and launch it allowing the rival to sail into it.

Pros and cons

  • Machine gun can carry a surplus of ammunition
  • Two torpedoes facing forwards, can help lead to incoming enemies
  • Small profile can make it hard to hit from a distance, especially against large-calibre weapons that have a slow fire rate
  • Speedy
  • Long range torpedoes (10 km)

Cons:

  • Basically no armour
  • Armament cannot fire towards the front except at high elevations
  • Machine gun armament has small belt of 50 rounds before reloading
  • Front is filled with engines, center filled with other important parts and crew, enemies can easily prioritize targeting for elimination
  • Gunner is somewhat exposed due to the lack of a gun shield.
