weight breakdown for torpedoes

Postby Frej » Mon Oct 30, 2017 4:05 pm

Can anybody please provide weight breakdowns for torpedoes? I don't need much detail, all I need is how much of the total weight of a torpedo at the moment of launching consists of the following:
- warhead (only the actual explosive)
- propellant (for instance, fuel+oxidizer, including any water coolant that may be present in the torpedo at launch but excluding any seawater ingested while running; for electric torpedoes the battery weight but not seawater)
- everything else (if you provide percentages rather than kg or lbs, I can of course calculate this myself)
The more different torpedo designs you include, the better, but a single design is enough if it is reasonably representative.
