>South Korea to share torpedo blue prints

>Turkey plans to acquire blue prints for a torpedo from South Korea says a recently published newspaper story.

The story itself has some obvious technical mistakes. It describes a wire guided heavy torpedo of 55km range and 50km speed, but names it as Blue Shark which is a light weight non-guided torpedo.

Despite that technical error the story is important. It clearly shows that Turkey’s interest in underwater sensor and weapons system in still in progress and there are foreign countries that are interested in cooperation in these areas. Commissioning of locally developed and produced would be strategic important for Turkish Navy. And acquiring the know-how could be a good start.

I am happy as I have predicted this development sometime ago.
