Description

Limited Edition re-release from Tamiya of the Vosper Fast Patrol Boat Perkasa. Highly detailed and includes 6 crew figures.

Vosper & Company was a British shipbuilding firm founded in 1871 and came to specialize in small craft. During WWII, the company became well known for their motor torpedo boat designs. After the war, Vosper continued to develope small fast patrol craft, one of which was the Brave Class. These boats were equipped with 3 Bristol Proteus engines, which powered the boat to top speeds of over 50 knots. They were armed with one 40mm Bofors cannon, two 20mm Oerlikon cannons and four torpedoes. The Perkasa was one of several Brave Class boats exported to the Royal Malaysian Navy.
