Work has begun on upgrading the fastest in the world torpedo Flurry


Torpedo "Flurry" will be improved under the new goals, First Chairman of the Scientific Council of Russian Academy of torpedostroeniyu Shamil Aliyev. One of the issues that he’s doing now — is the design of the hydrodynamic shape of the future torpedoes "Squall", the definition of the boundaries of air and water in the cavity. 

Russian (Soviet) torpedo "Flurry", which received worldwide recognition as the fastest in the world, will be improved under the new goals and objectives, said in an interview with RIA Novosti general designer profile of the plant "Dagdiesel" (Dagestan), the first chairman of the Scientific Council of Russian Academy of Shamil torpedostroeniyu Aliyev.

The first "Flurry" was created in the 50s of XX century, these torpedoes capable of going under the water in the air cavity at a speed of 250-300 kilometers per hour.

"One of the issues uncovered, which I do now — it’s the design of the hydrodynamic shape of the future torpedoes" Squall ", the definition of the boundaries of air and water in the cavity. When we define it, we can its" load. "We understand what can be payload. hydrodynamic shape is the basis for the layout of the underwater missile and its capabilities, "- said Aliyev.

As an example, he said that when the world realized that the effectiveness of "Shkval" — "nightmare" that began to try to make it manageable. "For example, the American counterpart" Shkval "involves putting a special multilayer datchikovoj" skirt. "That is a torpedo put some" skirts "-sensors along the body, which receive signals from the operator, and, depending on the command, the torpedo can change course," — said the academician.
