1/35 Vosper 74 Torpedo Boat with Crew

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 the German forces, unusable. The operation was given the code name of "Chariot". The port was in fact an important support point for the Kriegsmarine operations in the Atlantic. The operation was conducted by some torpedo destroyers and by a flotilla of motor boats destined to transport the 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 the 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 in 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 boat hit the target but during the return it was hit and sank.
