A rack of advanced guided torpedoes. The payload is smaller than usual to make room for the guidance package.
The Atropos torpedo is a 480mm guided torpedo with an extended range. Each rack mount has two torpedoes, which can be fired separately, allowing strike captains maximum flexibility. The AM-catalyzed nuclear warhead typically used in torpedo warheads is missing here as baryonic interference from the rare element would foul the guidance system. It is replaced by a smaller, yet still potent chemical charge.
