Double salvo: a special feature of the Swedish submarines

69

Swedish submarines are known for their stealth. This is largely due to their non-volatile power plant. However, other countries currently possess VNEU. The truly unique ability of the Swedish Navy's submarines is the ability to double volley.


This opinion is expressed by Forbes. According to him, the Swedish submarines carry both ordinary and light torpedoes. Moreover, it is possible to launch from one launcher two of them at once.

This is known in some parts of the defense community, but this ability is talked about in muffled tones [...] It is still practically not revealed. And some details of this feature are still kept secret.

- writes Forbes.

Light torpedoes, fired by a double salvo from a single device, are optimized for destroying enemy submarines, although the latest models can also be used against small warships and even enemy torpedoes. They are guided by wire. In the event of its breakdown, the torpedo enters the target hit mode using its own sonar.



In PU two light torpedoes are located one after another. Theoretically, this doubles the combat power of the submarine. In practice, Swedish submarines are equipped with both 533 mm launchers for full-size heavy torpedoes and 400 mm launchers for their special light counterparts.
This mixed loading allows Gotland-class submarines to fire up to 8 torpedoes at a time, even though they only have 6 launchers. The earlier Näcken class, which had 8 launchers, could simultaneously launch 10 torpedoes (6 heavy, 4 light).

History Operation of Swedish light torpedoes began in 1963 with the advent of the Torped-41. Currently, the Swedish submarines carry the 4th generation Torped-45, which entered service in the mid-1990s. The next type of Torped-47 is expected to be available. fleet in the year 2022. They will be equipped with the current A-19 Gotland class and submarines of the future A-26 Blekinge project.

As Forbes notes, although Sweden is the only country to use light torpedoes in submarines, other countries are considering similar opportunities. The United States Navy developed the “Very Light Torpedo Concept” (CVLWT) more than 10 years ago. Apparently, over time, it transformed into the VLWT ("very light torpedo") program recently introduced by Northrop Grumman. However, so far, Swedish submarines are the only carriers of a unique weaponsconcludes Forbes.

    When they charge a remote-controlled torpedo, they put a coil with wires. And where do they attach the second, when firing a second torpedo?

            There were cases during World War II when a torpedo, describing a full circle after
            miss, drowned the submarine that released her.
            Therefore, there was a rule for conductors: move after a torpedo
            volley.

      Perhaps this is not a problem because of the smaller diameter of the main TA, the diameter of the light torpedo.

        There is a problem, when charging a remote-controlled torpedo, on the inside of the TA cover there is a connector for connecting a torpedo coil. And he is ONE. If according to the TA charging scheme indicated in the article, then the coil of the first torpedo will rest on the nose of the second, but the second will be connected through the connector to the control unit. The result is this, the first one flies out and sinks right away (the coil will not work), but the second one I think will go normally.

            Point by point:
            1. The design of the torpedo tubes is about the same (I am very familiar with these devices).
            2. And which torpedoes do the Swedes use? And here are some:
            Guess for yourself, where is what?
            3. You can’t connect two torpedoes to one connector, you need a second connector. And for this you need a place. From the second point you can see where the coil is located and in the same connector. Well, honestly think with your head.

                Total weight: 280 to 350 kg (617 to 772 pounds).
                Warhead: 45 kg (99 lbs) of blasting explosive.

                Originally intended to replace the Tr41 torpedoes of the Swedish Navy, the Tr42 became the base model for a series of 400 mm (15,75 in) light torpedoes from FFV (currently the Shaab Bofors Dynamic), designed for both domestic and foreign markets. The base model Tr422 was adopted in mid-1983, mainly for conducting anti-aircraft missile defense by Boeing-Vertol 107 helicopters, the number of which was small.

    I showed the torpedo MK46 mod.3, full-time, small-sized torpedo of NATO countries. Hinting that the design of the remote-controlled torpedoes is the same, the differences are only in the design of the coil with cable.
    Just amazing! Not only do you really demonstrate horrible torpedoes, just not Swedish, but also MK46 mod.3 as remote control by wire is not mentioned! Well, for a snack: there is remote control by wire "hose" and with a towed coil.

    https://shoehanger.livejournal.com/33782.html
    What will not allow a paired connector to create? What does not allow both coils behind torpedoes to be placed if the TA length allows?

    Here is the MU 90:

    And what we have there, behind the screw. There's still a wire depicted, damn it !!! Again the coil !!!

    There is a problem, when charging a remote-controlled torpedo, on the inside of the TA cover there is a connector for connecting a torpedo coil. And he is ONE.

    A volley implies a simultaneous shot from several guns (torpedo tubes), and here is a "double" and even from one gun ??? Difficulties in translating or ...

      The text of the article in English says that 400 mm torpedoes from their "TPK" can be launched either one at a time or both at once (I will assume that there is a small interval between the torpedo exits). About the simultaneous salvo of all torpedo tubes in the original is not:

    Chief of Staff of the 4th Espl
    Dedicated to Ivan Nikolaevich Pargamon.

    <...> p. 108

    Once the fleet commander, Admiral of the Fleet G.M. Egorov planted an introductory shot at our squadron - to find areas
    patrolling Norwegian submarines. They were very annoying to the fleet. Virtually none of our nuclear submarines could
    enter or exit the main base, invisible to them. We knew about their presence nearby, but we needed to find
    way how to get around their position?
    We were asked to search for battery charging areas, and, clinging to the boat,
    follow her before coming to the patrol area. The squadron allocated two pairs of submarines operating as part of
    tactical groups. To no avail. Much later it was found that the Norwegian "Cobbens" before going out
    load disposable current sources. Their capacity was enough for 15 days of patrolling. So the charging areas
    they simply did not exist. These West German-made boats proved to be a dangerous adversary. Having
    displacement of 350 tons, they are armed with eight TA, located in a circle, like cartridges in a revolver drum.
    In each device they have the ability to load two anti-submarine torpedoes Mk37S. The remote control system allows you to control simultaneously two torpedoes.

    There were cases during World War II when a torpedo, describing a full circle after
    miss, drowned the submarine that released her.
    Therefore, there was a rule for conductors: move after a torpedo
    volley.

    This was not hit by a homing torpedo, but a torpedo with damage to the rotation angle mechanism after launch (the so-called circulation).
