Supercavitating Torpedo
A rocket torpedo that swims in an air bubble

By Eric Adams

The Russian ships/submarines in the Mediterranean are equipped with the VA-111 Shkval torpedo -- which has been in development since the 1960s.

These are ship killers. The Shval moves at 230 mph underwater and is unstoppable. One Russian ship armed with this weapon could sink every US naval vessel in the area.

The Ruskis are way ahead of us in some key areas of military weaponry.
