Nice guys, I´ll look up their dimensions, and add em.

Anyone else with requests, post any info you have here, and I´ll see to converting em to SB scale.

I'll see if I can't find some of the older Danish torpedoes.

In the part sheet, the Tigerfish look maybe lightly "too fat/widht" ?

ALL torpedos are too fat in that view, except for the Russian Kit. It wouldn't be possible to get any kind of good detail in. The lenght is good, the width a bit too big. Artistic liscense. I believe I explained that in the original thread.

It's already hellish to make a torp recognisable in this scale.

And Mike, enough. Also, if at all possible, go back to your posts and at least edit in the size of the damn torpedo! Or collate into a single post.
I'm willing to do them, I'm not all that anxious to look up everything about them. Slightly more basic info than just a picture would be nice. You just requested fifteen of em.

The FV 613 is identical to the Tp61
Dimensions: 533.4x7025mm
Speed/Range: 45-60kts/20,000m
Weight: 1765 kg
Warhead: 250 kg
Powerplant: Hydrogen Peroxide

For some reason, the Swedes could make HTP work, and as far as I'm aware, there hasn't been a single HTP related accident with the Tp 61 family.

Ok, Ok, all on single post, with main size data:
Obviously that draw all the torpedoes designed, it makes no sense
But drawing the most used (for all navy, all period) would be, I think, a good thing for shipbucket

While I'm not sure of their function, the holes toward the rear of the FV 613 (Also known as the Tp 61) does in fact continue all the way around the torpedo.
The local diving club have one on display outside their clubhouse, I'll see about getting some pictures.

Picture updated, also added a Chinese torpedo.

As for those holes, probably intakes and exhausts for the condensator which cools the exhaust to liquid, which is why those HTP torpedoes have so little wake.

Pictures allways welcome.

Well, I finally go around to actually take those pictures I promised.
Warning, big pictures ahead. 24mb in total.

Note that the orange warhead is a training warhead. I'm not sure what colour a war shot is.
