Unmanned sea vessel fires first torpedo

A Israeli-made unmanned sea vehicle, which will likely enter service in the Israel Navy, held its first torpedo launch test at Haifa port recently.

Until now, only manned sea platforms have been able to fire torpedoes.

The Seagull Unmanned Surface Vessel, made by Elbit Systems, fired light-weight torpedoes, which could be used to target enemy submarines, during the trial.
