    According to the characteristics indicated on the drawing, the top one is a diagram of the 53-39 air-kerosene torpedoes from 1941.
    Length 7488mm weight 1780kg with a 317kg warhead range/speeds 4km at 51kt (94.4km/h) 8km at 39kt (72.2 km/h) 10km at 34kt (63km/h) MO-3 gyro for angled fire (0 to 90 degrees port or starboard)
    (The range of the post war torpedoes was above 12km, warheads being also generally in the 400kg range instead of the 300kg range.)
    The bottom one is the SAET-50 the first Soviet acoustic homing anti-ship torpedo using the body of the ET-80 electric torpedo from 1942 (a copy of the German G7e torpedo), entered in service in 1950. Can reach 29 knots, can be set for circular or sector search.
