Under the AKYA National Heavyweight Torpedo Program, of which the €24 Million valued Phase-1 (Development Phase) contract was signed between the Presidency of Defence Industries (SSB), the main contractor Roketsan, and various domestic defence industry companies on May 8, 2009, a new Launch Test was carried out on December 20, 2019. According to our information and the test video shown at the evaluation meeting, the launch was performed from an underwater test platform at a depth of 40m. During this launch test, the AKYA Heavyweight Torpedo (HWT) was equipped with a live active/passive acoustic sonar sensor for the first time.

The first launch test of the 533mm AKYA HWT without the warhead and active/passive acoustic sonar sensor was carried out successfully in the Sea of Marmara on July 11, 2013. Under the AKYA National Heavyweight Torpedo Program, Roketsan will develop the warhead and guidance system, Meteksan Defence will develop the sonar transducer arrays (sonar wet end), and Koç Information and Defence Technologies (KBS) will develop the Wake Sensors, Torpedo Test Range Underwater Detection and Positioning System, Acoustic Signal Generators, and the Underwater Acoustic Models (to verify the systems and software to be developed under the program).

Critical materials are already written above, another critical material, the battery, was working with South Korea. (It was said when the battery convention was held in 2016) It is not quite correct to give it as a direct rate because we cannot be sure. For other questions, you can ask those who really understand this stuff on the forum.

Bottom Information: Akya follows the wake of the ships and makes zigzag maneuvers to avoid getting out of this wake, so there is a decrease in the range.

Are you nuts? He has just posted a news article. Whatever the price is, how is it is of your interest, you wont be getting it anyway. Go to Bharat Rakshak to get all the details and dont pass random comments to derail the thread.
