The order includes pre-studies and engineering which incorporates subsystem prototypes for improvements of the current torpedo.

The life extension program for the Swedish Navy’s heavyweight torpedo was first signed in 2020. Torpedo 62 is a heavyweight torpedo system for surface and underwater targets.

Torpedo 62 is equipped with an advanced propulsion system with high capacity and long endurance, combined with an advanced target seeker, developed for the Swedish Navy’s operational area.

The torpedo has a pump jet propulsion system giving it a maximum speed of over 40 knots. It can also track several targets and classify them at the same time.

In 2020, Saab had already received an order from the Swedish Defense Material Administration (FMV) to extend the life of the heavy torpedo system.
