Comparison with analogues
Give a comparative description of torpedoes that have firepower equal to this weapon.
Usage in battles
It is best to use this torpedo with 4m depth setting, as its low TNT filler amount, combined with low top speed, makes it useless against anything faster than a dreadnought. Keeping the 1m depth will prevent it from damaging dreadnoughts as their torpedo protection is fairly effective against these torpedoes.

- You have a torpedo in a dreadnought
- It is not fast enough to hit destroyers and cruisers, and does not carry enough TNT to destroy dreadnought
