Saab’s new lightweight torpedo debut

Saab recently showcased its New Lightweight Torpedo at this year’s Undersea Defence Technology (UDT) exhibition in Bremen, Germany.

In May 2016, the Swedish Defence Material Administration (FMV) placed an order for the development and production of New Lightweight Torpedo system. The total order value of the development program amounts to approximately SEK1.53 billion and deliveries are scheduled during the period 2016-2024.

This is the first time the company has showcased this new and ground-breaking torpedo system to the market. Saab is today the only supplier developing a brand-new torpedo system ready for the modern threats. It is a flexible system that suits perfectly for navies operating in both littoral and blue waters. The development program goes as planned, and during the fall first water test will be conducted.

Saab has over the years established a unique experience and expertise in developing underwater systems, for shallow waters and the types of environments that exist in the Baltic Sea, including adapted propulsion, communications and target seekers.
