Product Description

After the E.W. Bliss Co. had manufactured Whitehead Torpedoes for several years, one of the company's engineers, F. Leavitt, developed a turbine-driven antisurface ship torpedo which was designated the Bliss-Leavitt Torpedo Mk 1. In addition to the engine change, the air flask pressure of the new weapon was increased to 2250 psi (vice 1500 psi for the Whitehead units). The air in the new model was heated by burning alcohol in a chamber upstream from the engine. The increased air flask pressure and heated air served to increase the range of the Bliss-Leavitt Mk 1 to 4000 yards at 27 knots. (The range was 1500 yards at 28.5 knots for the 5-meter Whitehead Mk 2.) This torpedo, in service on battleships, torpedo boats, and cruisers, used a single vertical turbine wheel rotating about the torpedo's longitudinal axis and driving a single propeller. The unbalanced torque was sufficient to cause the Mk 1 to have a tendency to roll.
