Netherlands seeks MK-48 Mod 7 conversion kits

27th February 2020 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US State Department has made a determination approving a possible foreign military sale to the Netherlands of MK-48 Mod 7 Advanced Technology (AT) torpedo conversion kits.

Under a programme worth an estimated $85 million, the Netherlands has requested 16 MK-48 Mod 7 AT torpedo conversion kits, along with spare parts, containers, associated hardware, torpedo handling equipment and support services.

The equipment will enable the Netherlands to upgrade additional MK-48 Mod 4 torpedoes to the MK-48 Mod 7 AT model, which it intends to use on its Walrus class submarines.  

If the sale goes ahead the prime contractor will be Raytheon.
