1/72 Scale. Due to the absolute superiority of the Allied materiel at sea and in the air, from 1944 onwards warfare at sea became ever more difficult. The areas patrolled by the high-speed motor torpedo boats, the English Channel and also the Baltic, were subject to ever more frequent air attacks by a numerically superior enemy who specifically hunted high-speed torpedo boats. Consequently the efforts of the crews were primarily concentrated on higher fire power and speed as well as more effective air defense, that was considerably improved by the feared four-barreled Flak C38 anti-aircraft gun. At the beginning of the war the Friedrich Lrssen/Vegesack shipyards developed this fast, type of seaworthy torpedo boat that maintained its performance even in heavy seas, had brilliant maneuverability and continued to be built until the end of the war without major modifications. These torpedo boats, also known as S-Boote, generally proved their worth on escort and protection duties, minefield reconnaissance patrols and above all in combating surface units and enemy submarines. They operated chiefly off the Dutch and French coasts, the English coast and the Channel and also the North Sea and the Baltic and were also used in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea. The final version was the Type S-100 that was produced after 1943 and can be regarded as the best high-speed torpedo boat of its period. Length: 486mm. Parts: 244.
