... At a test-firing in March 2012, the heavyweight torpedo SeaHake mod4 ER (Extended Range) achieved a range of over 140 kilometres.
Note that 140 clicks = 86.92 statute miles
While it might take an hour to reach its target area a salvo of these things could generate an awfully large area of surprise 'torpedo water'....but unlike say the Battle of Tassafaronga, the torpedo water would be full of homing weapons. Yikes!
This massively complicates the defense of our warships.
On the bright side, this looks like a viable excuse for...TORPEDO Pr0n!
In all three of those videos, the torpedo goes off directly beneath the ship and breaks the keel. It's spooky to see them hinging up and down at the detonation point, isn't it?
Of course, with its back broken the ship is doomed. Nothing can save it. Modern torpedoes are scary.
