Naval Group performed a new launch of the F21 torpedo in the frame of the Artémis program led by the French Defence Procurement Agency (DGA). In the medium term, the DGA aims to equip all French Navy submarines with this next generation heavyweight torpedo.
This launch was performed in early May from a French Navy Rubis-class nuclear-powered attack submarine (SSN). The F21 was launched under the authority of the DGA in a DGA Missiles Testing’s underwater acoustic range near Toulon.
