Design "Type T-14", officially the No.538 class Motor Torpedo Boat (第五百三十八号型魚雷艇), was the final production model of the Type Otsu Motor Torpedo Boat (乙型魚雷艇), and also the most produced Japanese MTB.
 
 
 
Before WW2, the Imperial Japanese Navy did not have any interest in small crafts, and such crafts were mainly built by the Army. However, during the Pacific War, the US navy began commerce raiding with PT boats. To counter them, IJN began to develop the Type Otsu MTB, based on a design taken from the Army's MGB Ka-Ro, and using a wide variety of spare aircraft engines.
 
 
 
But, old engines could not provide enough power, and using various types of engine caused problems with maintenance. To solve these issues, IJN developed the new "Kanhon-Type Mark 71 Model 6" (艦本式71号6型) engine. This engine was a copy of the Isotta-Fraschini W18 water-cooled engine mounted on MAS-451's imported from Italy.
 
 
 
At first, Type T-35 (No.468 class MTB) was equipped with two of these engines, but production of this engine was very difficult and production rate per month was only 3-4 (Later on, the rate was improved to around 20 per month). Because of this, they began to develop a Type Otsu MTB with a single engine. The Type T-25 (No.469 class) was created, designed to equip one Mk.71 Mod.6, however hull size was the same as former models so it couldn't get enough speed, and the hull was reworked to be smaller, forming the Type T-14 and T-15 (No.491 class MTB). The Type T-14 was chosen for mass-production, and eventually 83 were produced.

Description

GarageImage Type T-14.jpg


The Type T-14 (1945) is a rank I Japanese motor torpedo boat with a battle rating of 1.0 (AB/RB/SB). Announced back in Update 1.63 "Desert Hunters", the Type T-14 was introduced into the game in Update 1.89 "Imperial Navy".

General info

Survivability and armour

Talk about the vehicle's armour. 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 manoeuvrability. 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. Save tips for preserving survivability in the "Use in battle" section.

If necessary, use a graphics template to show the most well-protected or most vulnerable points in the armour.

Mobility

Write about the ship’s mobility. Evaluate its power and manoeuvrability, rudder rerouting speed, stopping speed at full tilt, with its maximum forward speed and reverse speed.

Armament

Primary armament

Main article: Type 93 (13.2 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.

Torpedo armament

Main article: Type 2 torpedo

Torpedoes launchers are standard equipment on many ships and boats. Torpedoes are a significant means of defeating an opponent. Evaluate the position of the torpedo launchers, discuss the ammunition available, firing specifics such as dead zones, features of the torpedoes themselves, etc.

If there is no torpedo armament, remove this section.

Special armament

Main article: Type 95 depth charge

Depth charges, mines, rocket launchers and missiles are also effective in skilled hands and can take an off-guard opponent by surprise. 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 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).

Modules

Tier Seakeeping Unsinkability Firepower
I Dry-Docking Tool Set 13 mm HEIT belt
II Rudder Replacement Fire Protection System Smokescreen AP-T
III Propeller Replacement Primary Armament Targeting Depth Charges
IV Engine Maintenance New Pumps Artillery Support

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

Pros:

Cons:

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 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.

Media

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