In War Thunder, we present the early series Project 183 with four diesel engines, with an output of 4,800 hp in total. The relatively light design of wood and aircraft plywood allows her to reach a speed of 44 knots, i.e. over 80 km/h. The vessel is equipped with two torpedo tubes, two twin 25mm 2M-3 cannons and 12 depth charges – an arsenal fit to overcome practically any military challenge. The ship's cabin and bridge are armored (up to 7 mm), and the autocannons are also equipped with defensive screens (4 mm armor). The vessel has a crew of 14.
The large Project 183 torpedo boat will be a treat for players that enjoy mobile, aggressive gameplay. The ship accelerates extremely quickly and maintains an excellent speed for her class. Her four autocannons provide close grouping even over great distances, which means you can be one of the first on your team to start firing on enemy ships. The cannons do not fire particularly rapidly (roughly 300 shots per minute), but their high-explosive fragmentation shells are equally effective against both hulls and boat crews. The two torpedoes are best saved for large ships or used as a last-ditch weapon to guarantee the destruction of opponents in smaller vessels. The depth charges detonate at a shallow depth and are an excellent means of getting particularly tenacious boats off your tail – just be sure to calculate the explosive delay correctly.
The Project 183 Bolshevik is a pleasant vessel in all respects,
