What advantages will the new torpedo give the Russian fleet


Tests of a new electric torpedo "Case" have been completed in Russia. The ammunition, which is essentially an improved version of the UGST "Physicist", will enter service with the Russian Navy in the near future.


The main advantage of electric torpedoes is their almost silent movement, which allows them to remain unnoticed to the last.

For the first time this type of weapon appeared in the Soviet Union in 1980. USET-80 could reach a maximum speed of 45 knots and move almost silently at 19-22 knots. However, the first domestic electric torpedo had two significant drawbacks: its cable travel range was only 18 km, and production was extremely expensive.

In 2002, the Russian Navy adopted the UGST "Physicist". This ammunition could cover a distance of 25 km by cable, and then, for another 30 km, independently search for a target, including along the wake. The new torpedo was no longer inferior to NATO counterparts. But Russia decided to go further.

On the eve of the completed state tests, the UGST "Case" will be able to operate at a depth of 700 meters, develop a speed of up to 65 knots and hit a target at a distance of 70 km. At the same time, its on-board homing system makes it possible to detect nuclear submarines of the Virginia type of the Block III model in a sphere with a radius of up to 4 km.

In addition, "Case" has one more significant plus. Its weight and size characteristics differ little from its predecessor, which means that re-equipment of existing submarines with new ammunition will not cause any difficulties.

        By no means, this is the money of Russia, since it believes that it should sink its own, unparalleled analogs "PL -" Kursk "," losharik ", if for 30 years it has not been able to launch ONE combat aircraft, build a road to the Far East , tries to settle in Chukotka, patch holes in space with tape, climbed into Crimea and does not know what to do with it.Then yes, let 30% of the country's population live below the poverty line, for that is, villas worth 1 billion enemy rubles and ANYONE owned, then Yes, there is a shortage of torpedoes, not yet their entire fleet has been torpedoed, but with the "Newest No Equivalents" the task will certainly be completed!

                        The Russians can no longer serve themselves, do the Ukrainians and Asians serve them? Although this has already happened, Russia -Independent will soon rule: BAI and PANI, although it already exists! And to someone else, do you want to prove something? Relax, Morning Evenings Wiser!

        logical logic at the saucepan, an article about Russia and he wants to discuss the problems of Russia (just like on Chernomyrdin, if you scratch your hands in another place, here he itches) from what fright and from which side he discusses Russia is clear only to him
        maybe Russia is more interesting to discuss or the problems of Russia help him to forget that his agricultural collective farm is in such a well ... there is nothing to discuss there

    They write that each has 100 million wooden. This is not a lot for such torpedoes, about one and a quarter million dollars. If so, then Honor and Glory to them!

    This is not "news" but nonsense and AHENIA of the obviously "yellow" resource sonar2050.org
    Question to the editor - why did this illiterate nonsense and AKHINA need to be repost ???
    1. UGST and Physicist - DIFFERENT torpedoes, even outwardly very different
    2. And UGST and Physicist and Case THERMAL
    3. Everything that is said in the video about USET-80 is nonsense "afffluorof" of this "kreatiFa"
    4. All numbers and characteristics are SUCKED out of the "dirty finger".
    5. In 2002, there was nothing that was "put into service", even technical projects for UGST and Physics were not ready!
    etc.
