UDT 2017: Saab shows off new lightweight torpedo

Saab has showcased its new lightweight torpedo at this year’s Undersea Defence Technology (UDT) exhibition which is taking place in Bremen, Germany.

The torpedo was ordered by the Swedish Defence Material Administration in 2016 and this is the first time Saab is demonstrating the system to the global defense market.

The Swedish defense ministry’s order for the development and production of the torpedo system amounts to approximately SEK1.53 billion (around $175 million) and deliveries are scheduled during the period 2016-2024.

“It is a flexible system that suits perfectly for navies operating in both littoral and blue waters,” says Anne-Marie Vösu, head of business unit underwater systems within Saab business area dynamics.

“The development program goes as planned, and during the fall we will conduct the first water tests at our own test facility,” continues Anne-Marie Vösu.
