The MTT small-size thermal torpedo is designed to destroy submarines and is used as part of ASW torpedo systems installed on board surface ships, submarines, ASW rocket systems installed on board surface ships and submarines, as well as airborne systems.
The MTT torpedo and its layout scheme:
- equipment module;
- warhead section;
- adaptation section;
- fuel tank section;
- power section;
- tail unit.
The MTT is fired from a common transport-launch canister mounted on board a surface ship or from a submarine torpedo tube.
This torpedo incorporates:
- a new more powerful piston engine operating on a pronit-type high-energy single-component fuel, which gives the torpedo a capability to kill high-speed nuclear-powered submarines;
- a new homing system with digital signal processing;
- on-board computer;
- directional explosive charge.
The torpedo can simultaneously track several targets, including in a sonar countermeasure environment, and can be used in a wide envelope of depths, including shallow waters.
The MTT has modular design, allowing the replacement of its component parts. Compatibility of its onboard systems with the platform’s battle management systems is achieved by programming its system unit during adaptation to the given ship project.
