Why doesn't the US Navy have supercavitating torpedoes? The Russians have one, the shkval I/II , and actually the Iranians have one, a copied
version called the hoot, or whale, even though the Russians claim it cannot be reversed engineered.
The Russian Navy is the primary user of the Shkval. A downgraded Shkval, the Shkval-E went to an international arms fairs in 1995, and both China,
Iran and France have been known to have acquired limited numbers of Shkvals. I guess so did their sunburn missiles.
The Germans have one called Barrakuda.
Is any one surprised that US Navy doesn't have one by now?
