The term Vosper MTB (full name: Vosper Motor Torpedo Boat) is, in essence, a term for several types of motor boats and torpedo boats from the interwar period and World War II, manufactured by Vosper. The first one, chronologically, was a cutter developed by Commander Peter Du Cane in the late 1930s, and became part of the Royal Navy in 1937. It is sometimes referred to as the Vosper "Private Venture Boat". One of the most produced was the Vosper 70 ft MTB, which entered production in 1940. It was most often powered by a Packard V1 engine and was capable of reaching up to 37 knots. Its armament included two 533 mm torpedo launchers, two 12.7 mm machineguns and two 7.7 mm machineguns. In the years 1943-1945, however, cutters were produced called Vosper 73 ft MTB with a length of 22 meters, capable of reaching a speed of 40 knots and armed with 2 or 4 457 mm torpedo tubes, a 20 mm Oerlikon cannon, two Vickers cal. 7.7 mm and - in the so-called variant II - the 57mm QF 6 pdr gun. All presented units were used by the Royal Navy, among others in the North Sea, Mediterranean and English Channel.
