Turkish independence in naval systems: two new torpedoes from Roketsan

European Defense Review – Attack systems are definitely among those that might be most easily submitted to embargo, hence the decision to develop national torpedo solutions to arm submarines and surface ships. The first development started long time ago at Roketsan, the initial decision to develop the Akya 533 mm heavyweight torpedo dating back to 2009. The Akya will enter the Turkish Navy inventory during the current year, qualification is ongoing, while the company has already started the series production phase in order to have the system operational by 2022.
