NEW FROM italeri 1/35 Vosper MTB 74 with crew 5624

THE PACKAGE CONTAINS: 7 FIGURES, PHOTO-ENGRAVED, ACETATE, VINES AND ROPES

On March 28, 1942, a joint operation was undertaken by the Navy and the British Commandos to render the large dry dock of the French port of Saint Nazaire, occupied by German forces, unusable. The operation was given the code name of "Chariot". The port was in fact an important support point for Kriegsmarine's operations in the Atlantic. The operation was carried out by some torpedo fighters and a flotilla of motolances destined for the transport of commandos. The operation was successful and the dry dock was damaged and rendered unusable until the end of the war. A decisive role was assigned to fast light assault vehicles. MTB 74, which participated in the action, it was specially modified by the Royal Navy shipyards by moving the two torpedo launchers to the front position and was equipped with silencers at the exhausts to act unnoticed. His task was in fact to hit the anti-submarine nets and then launch the torpedoes to block the lock. The torpedo torpedo hit the target but was hit and sank on the way back.
