Description

The Hugin class was a set of small patrol boats designed for the post-war German Navy by a Norwegian designer. The two boats were ordered for evaluation since Germany decided to test a new hull shape different from their previous fast attack vessels, specifically designed to operate in narrow coastal waters. The two vessels were ordered in 1960 from the Norwegian company Båtservice Verft, of Mandal, that had already a decent experience with these sorts of designs. The experiment, however, failed and in 1964 the vessels were transferred to the Turkish Navy.

It was introduced in Update "Fire and Ice". The 152-class, Hugin (P6191) works very well in most conditions at its BR, but it suffers from lack of armour, a mediocre armament and the fact that is very small. It will usually fight early destroyers and gun boats with far more powerful armament. However the Hugin is very fast, and has very capable mobility. The 40 mm Bofors L/70 model 1948 cannon has access to pretty capable ammo belts, a decently large ammo pool and enough penetration to deal with other torpedo boats and even heavier gun boats armed with more conventional cannons. Is a good idea sneaking through the coast and attacking unsuspected destroyers or frigates using your torpedoes, while using your good mobility to rush capture points at the start of the match.

As expected for a vessel of its BR and class, the Hugin has rather poor survivability. Like most torpedo boats, the Hugin has a very exposed main armament and the ammo magazines are also very exposed to even 12.7 mm fire. Even small high explosive projectiles can set the boat afire and disable it or even destroy it by killing most of the crew in case of a direct hit to the crew compartment.

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 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

Summarise 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 - use substitutions with softer forms such as "inadequate" and "effective".

History

During German rearmament in the Cold War era, the West German Navy, the Bundesmarine, had built a number of fast attack vessels mostly based on previous designs of World War 2. However since the Cold War era introduced much superior technology, these vessels were very outmatched by Soviet and East German designs.

Thus, in the 1960s, the German Navy was interested in the adoption of a new concept for a completely different shape for vessels made for narrow coastal waters. A Norwegian company by the name Båtservice Verft was interested in providing Germany with these designs. This company already had experience in designing small motor boats and they provided Germany with a prototype fast patrol boat called the Nasty, designed with a hard-chined planing hull.

Germany acquired only two boats, named Hugin and Munnin after Odin's ravens in Norse mythology. The two vessels remained in service for almost four years, but the experiment was not successful and they were transferred to the Turkish Navy in 1964.
