    ^^^^^
    This has to be a ship launched torpedoes as they have no operational submarine for now.

    It's most likely a ship launched torpedo, light or heavy weight?

    Indian Torpedo Systems in my knowledge;
    • TAL LwT
    • Varunstra Ship launched HwT
    • Takshak Ship Launched HwT
    • Takshak Submarine Launched HWT
    • Toprpedo with Thermal Propulsion called Shakti (can generate 500 kilowatt of power and rev up the engine within a second)
    Interestingly,
    India also utilizes a Torpedo testing facility in Tajikistan, once alleged for developing nuclear torpedoes, if India really develops something like this, it can be third country after USSR and USA to have nuclear torpedoes.

    Though, a nuclear torpedo may be useless for India, it doesn't fit in our Nuclear Doctrine and No First Use Policy.:)

    Not going off topic, as Chinese subs have arrived Bangladesh, it makes sense for Myanmar to acquire more ASW warfare corvettes and ships from India.
