The select a boat section shows a short vosper MTB test firing both tubes under "Motor Torpedo Boats".Is it safe to assume she is one of the MTB20-23 series,and if so is it also safe to assume that as the white ensign is flying from the main mast that she was fully operational as a RN vessel and therefore the only one not sold to Romania,i.e.MTB22?

I keep answering my own questions,that'll teach me to shaddap.The same picture curiously also appears on page 24 of Strike Craft by Anthony Preston,and is un"censored".It's MTB 23.Methinks this was a test posed by the top brass.We should have all realised as the number pennants are clearly visible!
