The Russian Navy’s nuclear warheads will be loaded with new UET-1 Ichthyozavr torpedoes.

– In the near future, it is planned to install some types of nuclear warheads and torpedoes UET-1. The process of refurbishing nuclear ships will begin after the diesel-electric units of projects 636.3 Varshavyanka and 677 Lada are fully equipped with new torpedoes, a source from the military-industrial complex said to TASS. The agency has no official confirmation of this information.

The UET-1 natural electric torpedo has a capacity of 533 mm. The characteristics of the cartridge are closed, for the export version a speed of 50 knots and a range of 25 km are mentioned. It is also known that the torpedo has no remote control, it can detect the wake and change its speed.

In 2018, the Ministry of Defense signed a contract for the delivery of 73 Ikhtiandr torpedoes to the Russian Navy. However, this number is not enough to accommodate all the Varshavyankas available in the fleet. A few days ago there was news that from 2023 the production volumes of UET-1 will increase.
