Unlike most training missiles, torpedoes can be recovered, and considering the pricetag on a 21" wireguided torpedo, something you want to do.

I have another one in the pipeline, I just have to figure out what colour scheme it used.

She`s cute. But I think she is way to small. Torpedo/Missilerecoveryships should be able to lift the torpedo on to the ship. The Swedish ones are/where at least 30m 130-150 tons with a powerful crane. How do the Danes recover torpedos? Tow them to shore?

There's two hatches in the back that allows the torpedoes to be floated in.
And despite being small, they still provided something like 40 years of service.
