German Torpedoes manufactured prior to the end of World War II were designated as to their diameter, length and propulsion. Modifications were usually, but not always, denoted by T numbers. Length was to the nearest meter. For example, the designation G7a meant that the torpedo was 53.3 cm (21") in diameter, was about 7 meters long and had an wet heater motor.
|F||45 cm||D||Dampftorpedo (wet heater, World War I)|
|G||50 or 53.3 cm||a||Air/steam (wet heater, World War II)|
|J||70 cm||u||Hydrogen peroxide|
