Description

GarageImage VS-10.jpg


The Tragflügel-Versuchs-Schnellboot VS-10 is a rank II German hydrofoil torpedo boat with a battle rating of 3.0 (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

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. 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 armour.

Mobility

The VS-10 is a ship that has good mobility, mainly due to its hydrofoils. It is a relatively fast ship, however, the use of hydrofoils can make manoeuvring difficult, especially in shallow waters. The reverse speed of the VS-10 is average. In realistic battles, the ship begins to ride on the hydrofoils at ____ kph.

Armament

Primary armament

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: G7a (533 mm)

The VS-10 is equipped with two 533 mm G7a torpedoes. These torpedoes are quick, reaching speeds of 81 kph without the torpedo modification, and with it, __ kph. Given the VS-10's role as a fast attack craft, it is not suggested to install the torpedo modification, as this craft should be used in the close combat role, as mentioned in the "Usage in Battles" section. Uninstalling the torpedo modification allows for faster target impact, reducing the chance of your prey dodging the torpedoes, and requiring lesser lead, which is useful given their location on the vessel. The two G7a torpedoes are fired from single tubes on either side of the craft. These tubes have a moderate outward spread, unlike the preceding boats in its tree, making firing both at the same target or within close proximity of each other difficult, which is exacerbated by the craft's poor high-speed manoeuvrability.

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

Pros:

  • Placement of the six gun turrets result in a very dense cone of fire against aircraft
  • Lots of ammo, with limited need to reload ensures a continuous stream of fire
  • Shreds the crews of unarmored targets
  • Stable firing platform at high-speed thanks to the hydrofoils

Cons:

  • Hard to steer, and slower to decelerate when at high speed
  • Placement of gun turrets makes it hard to get all guns on target when engaging other ships
  • Low crew count
  • No armour
  • Lacks harder hitting weaponry against larger, armoured vessels, outside of the available torpedoes
  • Hydrofoils make maneuvering in shallow waters difficult

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 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.

Media

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