Paket-NK is a newly introduced torpedo system in the Russian Navy. According to its manufacturer, JSC "Tactical Missiles Corporation", it is a dual mode acoustic torpedo intended to destroy both submarines and torpedoes in the near field of the ship.[1] The small-size torpedo is used against submarines, whereas the anti-torpedo against attacking torpedoes.[2][3][4] Russian state news agency TASS announced on 13 May 2019 that the Paket-NK had completed its cycle of trials.[5] Almost all surface combatants of the Russian Navy (Voyenno-Morskoy Flot, VMF) will be fitted with the Paket-NK anti-submarine warfare (ASW) system.[6]
