video of torpedo damage to a destroyer.

Ever wondered why wrecks are so broken up?

Breathtaking.

Re: video of torpedo damage to a destroyer.

I am sure it's not but the destroyer looks like a model, it moves a lot in pretty calm seas in the first few frames where you see it.

Re: video of torpedo damage to a destroyer.

Good point, but I guess it's because they emptied all fuel tanks and such. Ship is probably a lot lighter then usual. Impressive tough.........

Re: video of torpedo damage to a destroyer.

I have seen this footage before.
Seems like people are cutting in other films to make it more dramatic.

This torpedo is not a torpedo from World War two or that style.
This system operates deeper and then denotes under the boat.
First it causes a massive lift which breaks the back of the ship and then the ship falls into the hole displaced by the exposition. A very effective way to break a ship into two parts.

The older systems ran into the side of the ship detonating on impact or on a specific distance. This newer system seems a lot more effective and lets the sub keep the fish deep.

This is just my simple opinion.

You want to see nasty you should see some of the new high speed micro bubble systems that are being worked on for torpedoes. Yikes…
Link- AFM-L Alfa

Also there a nasty rumor that the Iranians have purchased the Sizzler Missile from the Russians. It’s a super sonic missile.

Re: video of torpedo damage to a destroyer.

Andrew is right, these are influence torpedoes tha detonate under the ships keel and all the explosive force goes up since its the path of least resistance.

The Americans and the Germans knew of this during WW2 and had torpedoes set with magnetic detonators and depth adjustment devices. However these where so unreliable that i wouldn't count that every WW2 wreck that is broken up took such a hit.

Re: video of torpedo damage to a destroyer.

The ship was the HMAS Torrens DE53, was sunk in about 2000m off the Western Australian coast, in 1999, by a Mk48 torpedo fired by the HMAS Farncomb, which was the second of the Collins Class submarines.

The footage pops up again every 6 months or so. Seen it plenty of times, but its still pretty spectacular!

I just wish they'd sunk it a bit shallower...

Re: video of torpedo damage to a destroyer.

Jason, I think you'd be thinking of the Derwent, not the Torrens.

Derwent is in approx 200m, Torrens is in over 2k...

When I first saw the footage I thought, "Man am I glad I'm not in the engine room now!"

She was a fine ship in her day and just goes to show what little chance anyone below decks has with the new generation weapons.

Glad I'm a Civie now
