Torpedo classes and diameters

Torpedoes are launched several ways:
From a torpedo tube mounted either in a trainable deck mount (common in destroyers), or fixed above or below the waterline of a surface vessel (as in cruisers, battleships, and armed merchant cruisers) or submarine.
Early submarines, and some torpedo boats (such as the U.S. World War II PT boats, which used the Mark 13 aircraft torpedo) used deck-mounted "drop collars", which simply relied on gravity.
From shackles aboard low-flying aircraft or helicopters.

As the final stage of a compound rocket or ramjet powered munition (sometimes called an assisted torpedo).

Many navies have two weights of torpedoes:

A light torpedo used primarily as a close attack weapon, particularly by aircraft.
A heavy torpedo used primarily as a standoff weapon, particularly by submerged submarines.

In the case of deck or tube launched torpedoes, the diameter of the torpedo is obviously a key factor in determining the suitability of a particular torpedo to a tube or launcher, similar to the caliber of the gun. The size is not quite as critical as for a gun, but diameter has become the most common way of classifying torpedoes.

Length, weight, and other factors also contribute to compatibility. In the case of aircraft launched torpedoes, the key factors are weight, provision of suitable attachment points, and launch speed. Assisted torpedoes are the most recent development in torpedo design, and are normally engineered as an integrated package. Versions for aircraft and assisted launching have sometimes been based on deck or tube launched versions, and there has been at least one case of a submarine torpedo tube being designed to fire an aircraft torpedo.

As in all munition design, there is a compromise between standardisation, which simplifies manufacture and logistics, and specialisation, which may make the weapon significantly more effective. Small improvements in either logistics or effectiveness can translate into enormous operational advantages.

Some common torpedo diameters (using the most common designation, metric or inch, and listed in increasing order of size):

12.75 inch (approximately 324 mm) is the most common size for light torpedoes.
15 inch torpedoes were mounted on Russian torpedo boat destroyers (TBDs) during the Russo-Japanese War in 1904-1905. After the war, the Imperial Russian Navy re-armed their TBDs with 18" torpedoes.[36]
406 mm (16 inch) was the size of the earliest specialised Soviet ASW torpedoes. 16-inch (406 mm) torpedo tubes were fitted to Soviet Hotel, Echo and early Delta class submarines, often in addition to 21-inch (530 mm) tubes.
450 mm (17.7 inch) was the standard size for light torpedoes of the Imperial Japanese Navy. It was also widely used by Italian Navy (Regia Marina) during World War II; it was the common size of the torpedo used by torpedo bomber. This size is sometimes referred to as 18 inches (460 mm).
483 mm (19 inch) was the size for the first U.S. homing torpedo, the Mark 24, also known as Fido.
533 mm (21 inch) is the most common size for heavy torpedoes, including:
Allied torpedoes of World War II
Imperial Japanese Navy submarine-fired torpedoes
Torpedoes of the Kriegsmarine
NATO torpedoes
Some Soviet and Russian torpedoes, including the current ASW models
550 mm (approximately 21.7 inches) was the standard size for French Navy torpedoes until France joined NATO and switched to 533 mm
610 mm (24 inch) torpedoes, the infamous World War II Type 93 'Long Lance', were used by Imperial Japanese Navy destroyers and cruisers, and as the basis for some Kaiten.
650 mm (approximately 25.6 inches) is the largest torpedo diameter used by the Russian navy, such as the Type 65. Adaptors are used to fire 533 mm (21 inch) models from 650 mm tubes.

Even larger sizes of torpedo tube, including 660 mm (26 inches), 762 mm (30 inches), and 916 mm (about 36 inches), have been installed on some nuclear submarines. These tubes are designed to be capable of firing large diameter munitions such as cruise missiles, as well as the standard 21 inch heavy torpedo.
