Does anyone know more about this anti-torpedo system and how it works? Look at its speed. :o
On the left here:
Of coarse the Shkvals :cool: too.

Found another not so good pic of this mysterious weapon:
Along with an even better pic of the elusive surface launched Shkval:
What the heck type of ship is launching this torp?

I didn't realize the Shkval was so small! Do they use some sort of adaptor to fit it in to the 533mm and 650mm torpedo tubes? And how do they squeeze a good proximity warhead in to that?

Well Ive always been interested in the Shkval but from what I can tell from pics Ive collected there seems to be at least 2 different sizes, or types of Shkvals. The ones Ive posted in this topic appear to be a smaller, more refined version then other pics I have. Was thinking one might be a test version but why display a test version at an arms show? You've probably seen this one before:

they use cans like the 688 and seawolf does for tube launched missiles otherwise it would just strip the torpedo tube lining that or burn it to pieces
note the motor isnt started inside the tube simple reason the tube would explode (like the SLBM problems)
