Vosper 2 series
4 x Mk.VII depth chargeSetup 3
The MTB Vosper 2 series is a rank I British motor torpedo boat with a battle rating of 1.7 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.83 "Masters of the Sea" as part of the British fleet closed beta test.
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.
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.
The Vosper 2 series is outfitted with the following primary armament:
1 x 20 mm Oerlikon Mk.II autocannon (1,980 RPG)
The Vosper 2 series is outfitted with the following secondary armament:
2 x 12.7 mm Vickers Mk.V machine guns (2,600 RPG = 5,200 total)

2 x 533 mm Mk.VIII torpedoes
The Vosper 2 series can be outfitted with the following special armaments:
4 x Mk.VII depth charges
Usage in battles
The main purpose of the Vosper 2 series is to use its torpedoes to sink other ships as this is where the most damage will occur. Though outfitted with a 20 mm autocannon and two 12.7 mm machine guns, these weapons are meant to be used as a backup or to finish off an already damaged ship. Attempting to take on a fresh ship with these guns will require the expenditure of most of the ammunition available. The damage difference between available ammunition types is negligible. Best bet is to utilize the 20 mm autocannon at ranges above 1,500 m while the 12.7 mm machine guns are a better fit and hit harder when in at closer ranges.
Pros and cons
- Powerful 20 mm with 40 mm of penetration for the AP round at range (+1,500 m)
- Good speed
- The twin turret with 12.7mm is much powerful than the quadra 7.7 mm
- Generous matchmaking
- No armour
- Only two torpedoes
- 20 mm cannon less effective at closer range (under 1,500 m)
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 If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: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.
An excellent addition to the article will be video guides, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.
