Description: The MU90 Impact lightweight torpedo has been designed to meet the requirements of both the French and the Italian navies. The MU90 is optimized for anti-submarine warfare in all environments.

The electric powered MU90 is able to engage small or large, conventional or nuclear submarines in blue and shallow water. It is a acoustically discreet fire and forget torpedo and can operate in dense countermeasures environments identifying decoys.

The MU90 Impact torpedo can be launched from any platform such as surface vessel, aircraft, helicopter, missile and underwater platforms such as mines and submarines. The MU90 features a variable speed (29 to 50 knots) to better adapt to different scenarios, a maximum range of 25,000 meters and 1,000 meters depth, an acoustic homing head, and a shaped charge warhead.

The MU90 can be used by surface vessels as a anti-torpedo torpedo and can simultaneously engage up to 10 targets.
