HWT Heavy Weight Torpedo


Saab offers the Heavyweight Torpedo (HWT) as the main armament for submarines, or as a supplement to missiles on surface attack vessels. A dual-purpose torpedo system, the HWT is equally well-suited to both roles.

The new heavyweight, high-performance HWT represents a revolution in terms of tactics, strike probability, flexibility and low lifecycle cost.

The HWT, currently utilised by the Royal Swedish Navy, is capable of destroying or disabling all types of surface vessels or submarines.

It can be launched from both submarines and surface vessels, offering a high degree of versatility.
