The SAET-60 is a heavyweight torpedo of Soviet origin. The SAET-60 is a passive acoustic homing torpedo that is launched by submarines against surface vessels. Most earlier Soviet torpedoes for use against surface vessels were either non-homing or wake homing. The SAET-60 uses an electric motor and has a 300 kg high explosive warhead with impact and proximity fuse. The SAET-60 has a long service history. This is mainly due to the limited anti surface vessel capability of the USET-80 dual purpose torpedo.
