Type 95 torpedo
The Type 95 was the fastest torpedo in common use by any navy at the time. Its warhead size was the largest of any submarine torpedo, and second only to the Type 93 "Long Lance" used by Japanese surface ships. It ran on pure oxygen rather than the compressed air used by most torpedo types at the time. Some have claimed this to be the best torpedo of the Second World War.[who?]
