Excerpt: The Type 91 was an aerial torpedo of the Imperial Japanese Navy which was designed to be launched from an aircraft. It was used in the naval battles of carrier task forces in World War II. The Type 91 aerial torpedo rev.2 won the admiration of the world. This torpedo had two unique characteristics: This system made it possible to release the Type 91 not only at a cruising speed of 180 knots (or 333 km/h, 207 mile/h) at an altitude of 20 m (66 ft) in a shallow water military port, but also in a power-glide torpedo-bombing run, at the Nakajima B5N2's maximum speed of 204 knots (or 378 km/h, 234 mile/h), into choppy waves of a rather heavy sea. The Type 91 torpedo had 450 mm (173/4 in) diameter. There were five models of body design and five models of warhead design put into service, with warheads from 213.5 kg to 526.0 kg (or 470.7 lb to 1160 lb) of high explosive 149.5 kg to 420.0 kg (or 329.6 lb to 925.9 lb), and effective ranges from 2,000 m to 1,500 m (or 2,187 yd to 1,640 yd) at 42 knots (or 77.8 km/h, 48.3 mile/h). The Type 91 torpedo was the only one practical aerial torpedo of the Imperial Japan. So it was also known as the Koku Gyorai, or aerial torpedo. Surface warships and submarines used other types of torpedo, namely the Type 93 and Type 95 respectively, while the Type 97 torpedo was designed for use by midget submarines. Here is the list of the series of Type 91 aerial torpedoes, production models. The later, heavier models had decreased their range, but this was not an operational problem as close launching was necessary for accuracy in any case. There were two versions in the Type 91 warhead rev.3. Type 91 warhead rev.3 and rev.3_rev. were differing in their supporting maximum launch spe.
