Description

GarageImage VS-10.jpg


The Tragflügel-Versuchs-Schnellboot VS-10 is a rank IV 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

Armourfront / side / back
Hull5 mm (steel)

The VS-10 has very little amour and nearly all ships at its battle rating can easily destroy the ship.

Mobility

AB155 / 30 km/h
RB111 / 22 km/h

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

6 х Turret15 mm MG 151 cannon
Ammunition2000 rounds
Belt capacity600 rounds
Fire rate700 shots/min
Vertical guidance-30° / 80°
Main article: MG 151/15 (15 mm)

The VS-10 is outfitted with the following offensive ordnance:

6 x 15 mm MG 151 cannons (total 1,800 rounds)

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.

Additional armament

Setup 12 x 533 mm G7a torpedo

Describe the available additional armaments of the ship: depth charges, mines, torpedoes. Talk about their positions, available ammunition and launch features such as dead zones of torpedoes.

If there is no additional armament, remove this section.

Usage in battles

The main advantage of the VS-10 is its speed. It can be played in many different ways, however, advancing to the middle of the map and holding down a position is advised. The armament can make short work of lesser-armoured vehicles, however, ships with many crews can pose a challenge. Many ships with guns over 70 mm can destroy the VS-10 in one shot. If faced with a difficult situation, it is advised that you retreat using the VS-10's superior speed. Important threats to this vehicle include the SF40 Leichte and other ships with large amounts of Anti-Air and secondary weapons.

When facing the VS-10, aim for the guns on the front deck and the torpedo launchers. Alternatively, aiming for centre mass is possible, however, the VS-10 will likely to be able to defend itself.

Modules

Tier Seakeeping Unsinkability Firepower
I Dry-Docking Tool Set 15 mm HEIT belts
II Rudder Replacement Fire Protection System Smokescreen 15 mm APIT belts
III Propeller Replacement Primary Armament Targeting
IV Engine Maintenance New Pumps Artillery Support Torpedo Mode

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 manoeuvring in shallow waters difficult

History

The VS-10 was an experimental hydrofoil torpedo boat that was constructed in Gebr. Sachsenberg, Hamburg. Ordered in 1942, this ship was constructed of a mixture of materials to include wood, steel, and other alloy metals. The VS-10 was able to achieve a maximum speed of 50 knots, due to its 6,000 hp engine. The VS-10 was later destroyed in 1944 during an allied bombing raid. A similar 'sister' ship to the VS-10 was ordered but due to the lateness of the war and lack of needed materials was never constructed.

Media

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