The TE-2 multipurpose electrically-driven remote-control homing torpedo is designed to engage submarines, surface combatants and other targets when fired from submarines and surface ships in autonomous and remote-control modes.
The TE-2 torpedo can be employed in ocean areas with water salinity of 30-35 ppm and water temperatures from 0°C to +25 °C.
The torpedo features a three-beam anti-ship homing system, absence of an acoustic proximity fuze, and use of an active proximity electromagnetic fuze, which detonates when the torpedo passes near a surface combatant or submarine.
The TE-2 torpedo is being developed in three variants:
- TE-2-01 with mechanical data input;
- TE-2-02 with electric data input;
- TE-2-03 with electric data input via a control and launch console.
