The G-5 Type is a Russian Motor Torpedo Boat or MTB. It has a single 12.7 mm DShK machine gun and carries two torpedos
Survivability and armour
Talk about the vehicle’s armor. Note the most well-defended and most vulnerable zones, e.g. the ammo magazine. Evaluate the composition of components and assemblies responsible for movement and maneuverability. Evaluate the survivability of the primary and secondary armament separately. Don’t forget to mention the size of the crew, which plays an important role in fleet mechanics. Tips for preserving survivability should be saved for the “Use in battle” section. If necessary, use a graphic template to show the most well-protected or most vulnerable points in the armor.
Write about the ship’s mobility. Evaluate its power and maneuverability, rudder rerouting speed, stopping speed at full tilt, with its maximum forward speed and reverse speed.
The only gun on the G-5 is a single 12.7 mm DShK machine gun. It can destroy any MTB and some larger boats if your lucky. You research 3 different ammo belts for the 12.7mm
Some ships are fitted with weapons of various calibers. Evaluate the secondary armament and give advice on how to use them. Describe the ammunition available for the secondary armament. Provide recommendations on how to use them and which ammunition to choose. Remember that anti-air armament, even heavy caliber weapons, belong in the next section.
If there is no secondary armament, remove this section.
An important part of the ship’s armament responsible for air raid defense. Talk about the ship’s anti-air cannons and machine guns, the number of guns and their positions, their effective range, and about their overall effectiveness – including against surface targets.
If there is no anti-aircraft artillery, remove this section.
The G-5 carries 2 533 mm 53-38 torpedos
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 the battles
As with any MBT it is best to keep moving since a few good shots from other mtb's and larger boats can take you out. The 12.7mm can only fire from the sides of the boat and behind the boat. The 12.7 can't fire in front of the boat.
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. Do not 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".
Talk about the history of the creation and military application of the ship in greater detail than in the introduction. If there turns out to be too much historical information, put it in a separate article, taking the link to the vehicle article and adding the “/historical” block to it (e.g. https://wiki.warthunder.ru/Vehicle-name/historical) and add a link to it here using the main template. Links to sources must be provided 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.
Links to the articles on the War Thunder Wiki that you think will be useful for the reader, for example,
- reference to the series of the ship;
- links to approximate analogues of other nations and research trees.
