Mark V Intercept Missiles
Self-propelled guided projectile that operates underwater and is designed to detonate when in proximity of incoming torpedoes.
The MK-V is designed to intercept high speed torpedoes fired from nuclear submarines and surface ships. The MK-V replaced the MK-IV intercept torpedo. The MK-V has been operational in the U.S. and UEO Navies since 2012. The MK-V, when combined with countermeasures, is approximately 75.4% effective.
The MK-V intercept torpedo can operate with or without wire guidance and use active and/or passive homing. When launched it executes programmed target search, acquisition and attack procedures. It can also conduct multiple reattacks if it misses the target.
