Kit = Whale. Russian heavy-weight torpedo!
Here is what has the U.S. Navy so very worried? CAT a response to Kit but the former now seen to be ineffective!
Super-heavy weight Type 65 torpedo [Kit]. Soviet/Russian oversize [650 mm] torpedo, wake homing and always dangerous.
"The Type 65 is a torpedo manufactured in the Soviet Union/Russia. It was developed for use against US Navy aircraft carrier battle groups, as well as large merchant targets such as supertankers and advanced enemy submarines. It is now typically fitted to newer Russian vessels"
"Russian officials have stated that a 65-76A modification of this torpedo is responsible for the explosion of the Russian Kursk submarine."
Either a premature thermal battery activation, the hydrogen peroxide fuel self-combustive, a malfunctioning Kit setting off a chain-reaction of catastrophic events leading to the sinking of the Kursk.
EVEN SABOTAGE SUSPECTED BY RUSSIAN INTERNAL SECURITY FORCES!
Kit dangerous even to the Russian submariner!!
