It's a US made (non nuclear) torpedo that is in use today.
Very precise, very accurate and very powerful. This is the Australian Submarine Navy doing a live torpedo practice shot on one of their decommissioned ships. They used a MK-48 torpedo developed in the USA .
It is not a contact weapon. It is designed to go off directly
underneath the ship at about 50 feet under the keel. The effect is devastating as you can see from the video.
This lethal weapon can break the back of ships much larger than the one shown in this video.
They don't even have a chance of survival.
