Hope there is R&D ongoing for a indigenous VL-ASROC with Orka.
Both AKYA and ORKA was showcased with a contra rotating propeller,
However in recent reveals ORKA LWT was seen with a water-jet propulsion.
Also note the changes on the nose, sonar size has shrunk, and probably a better sensor suite is placed in new version.
From here, we can also expect AKYA to have a water-jet propulsion, to be noted from all these we can also conclude the showcased mock-ups wasn't representing the actual model in details but only in the sizes.
Wonder why nobody has not realized it yet

to be further noted, any kind of propulsion where propeller (becomes an impeller) is encased in a flow-conditioner (channel-duct) these kind of propulsion is a mix of duct propeller and impeller. More efficient, more silent.
One simply does not ask maximum speed and range of a torpedoWhat is the max speed of Akya?

We all will see it on brochure as 20-25 knots and 15 km range, not more.
So happy to see that some programs go ahead of time and deliver earlier than predicted.
In wake homing mode torpedoes has less range because they keep zig-zagging as they converge in a wake of the ship, thus initially torpedo should have a long range (say 50 km) to have 20 km wake homing.As I read an article from navy post wake homing torpedos should be fast and long range,but akya neither fast nor long range so probably akya specs are not true or there will be a reason that we do not know
Its normal not to reveal the actual specs,specially for countries with a sh!tload of ''enemies''.As I read an article from navy post wake homing torpedos should be fast and long range,but akya neither fast nor long range so probably akya specs are not true or there will be a reason that we do not know
Not all of the tests have been completed yet, how could the range be defined ?
Yes there is some progress , not referring to the torpedo (there is definitely a progress on that side) but revealing the specs.15km became 30+ now.
It says 30+ so the final range is still not revealed.30km range at what speed?
