As a senior research engineer with Penn State University Applied Research Lab, I assure readers that I am not endorsing a specific design of the very lightweight torpedo, but rather highlighting the unique benefits that such a weapon could bring to a variety of missions in general.
It was a sight not seen since the last world war. The largest armada of ships to sail into battle began to break through the early morning haze, 82 ships in all, including their newest carrier, commissioned just nine months earlier. The world was shocked at the events of the last year. Saber-rattling they called it. Little did they know that Operation Leaping Dragon had been in execution for more than three years. Two decades of planning were soon to come to fruition in a glorious and swift invasion. The Americans and their pompous claims to defend the rogue nation will arrive too late to be of any assistance. The occupation will be complete in three days, and the feeble U.S. carrier force will be more than two days away from the engagement.
