Length: 7 m (23 ft)
Diameter: 533 mm (21 in)
Maximum range: 54 km (30 nm) at low speed
23 km (12.5 nm) at high speed
Warhead: PBX explosive
Warhead weight: 300 kg (660 lb)
Detonation mechanism: Proximity or contact detonation
Engine: gas-turbine with Pump-jet
Propellant HAP / Otto fuel II
Speed 80 knots (150 km/h)
Guidance system: Wire-guided with autonomous active terminal homing sonar
The Phantom torpedo is a heavy torpedo designed for primary use aboard submarines. It can be guided by wire or by autonomous active or passive sonar, and provides both anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and anti-surface ship warfare (ASuW) capability.
The significantly high speed of the Phantom is intended to catch high-speed, deep-diving threats. The weapon is driven by a pump-jet coupled to a gas turbine engine using Otto fuel II and hydroxyl ammonium perchlorate as oxidiser.
A microprocessor aboard the weapon provides the ability to make autonomous tactical decisions during the attack. The torpedo has a powerful blast warhead, triggered by either contact detonation (against a submarine hull) or an acoustic proximity fuze (for under-keel detonation against ships). The warhead size allows for large size surface ships to be engaged and destroyed with a minimum expenditure of weaponry.
