Whitehead Div., Alenia Defesa, Finmeccanica (Europe)

Whitehead Division of Alenia Difesa a member of the Finmechanica group, presented a full scale version of its Black Shark dual purpose, wire guided Heavyweight torpedo, equipped with one of the Astra acoustic head and a new powerful propulsion system. The Black Shark is also equipped with an advanced sensor capability, allowing the target classification function even in very complex and unfavorable underwater scenarios. This weapon was developed for the Italian Navy requirements and was later selected to equip the Chilean and Malaysian Scorpene class submarines and is considered a strong candidate for the Indian selection, if a Scorpene design will be selected here as well.
