Type 2 (450 mm)
Write an introduction to the article in 2-3 small paragraphs. Briefly tell us about the history of the development and combat using the weaponry and also about its features. Compile a list of air, ground, or naval vehicles that feature this weapon system in the game.
Vehicles equipped with this weapon
Tell us about the tactical and technical characteristics of the bomb.
Describe the type of damage produced by this type of bomb (high explosive, splash damage, etc)
Comparison with analogues
Compared to the torpedoes used by the motor torpedo boats at a similar BR, the Type 2 trades a very short range and a rather slow speed for a very powerful warhead. Relative to the peers of the same diameter, it maintains about the same speed and range, while having double the explosive power, thus being a great performer among 450 mm torpedoes of the era.

Pros and cons
Summarize and briefly evaluate the weaponry in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark pros and cons as a list.
This torpedo is using Type 97 explosive also called Seigate. Seigate is mix of 60% TNT and 40% HND (Hexanitrodiphenylamine). Germany also used HND in their bombs with other chemicals, mostly TNT. It was used in bombs, naval mines and torpedoes but was discontinued due to its extreme toxicity.
Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
