Description: The UMGT-1ME is an anti-submarine warfare (ASW) torpedo designed to be released from airborne platforms inside a parachute-container against either surfaced or submerged submarines. It is equipped with hydro-acoustic active/passive homing head which provides fire-and-forget capability independently of the target's noise level. The Russian Navy has deployed the UMGT-1ME torpedo with both ASW helicopters and maritime patrol fixed-wing aircraft (MPA). Typically, the torpedo/container is placed in the aircraft's weapons bays.

The UMGT-1ME's homing head allows to engage both stationary and maneuvering targets with its 60 kg explosive charge detonating by impact or by a proximity fuze. Its modular design allows for a service life of up to 10 years with minimum maintenance. Being 3.845 meters in length, 400mm in diameter and weighing 725 kg, the torpedo is carried inside a parachute-container with 500mm in diameter. A practice round was developed based on the UMGT-1ME torpedo for training purposes.
