Another Torpedo Inbound

Greg Zonner, AIMM's executive director, has been working with the staff the Hawthorne Army Depot (the largest ordnance depot in the world) to acquire additional torpdoes to display aboard Razorback.

With the help of the Gyrodyne Helicopter Historical Foundation, we were able to acquire a MK45 torpedo.

However, we still have a lot of hard work ahead of us. The torpedo loading skids need significant repair work, and as you can see, the torpedo is in parts (this is a picture of all of the parts for several MK45s, which will be shared among the many submarine museums):

We don't know when we will pick up the parts, but this is what our torpedo will look like when finished:
