Hello!

Perhaps, it would be better to  start new thread about Italian underwater weapons, dividing them from the history of Piaggio P.108?

We already have nice story about Motobomba FFF and other secret underwater weapons here:
https://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,10863.msg129149.html#msg129149

And early Guidoni "winged" torpedo projects here:
https://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,25050.msg259514.html#msg259514

As the Italian activity in the making and using torpedoes have been quite remarkable, I kindly asks about creating separate thread about them.

Done, thanks for the clue !
And if anyone comes up with a better title ...
It takes a long time, before all mistakes are made ...

Found this image of "bomba a collisione" (Crocco design).

A bit puzzled - what are those two round things on the top of the bomb? They did not seems to be part of any kind of propulsion system (there weren't any on this bomb).

One of my friends suggested that this could be Venturi tubes, for correct airspeed measurements for autopilot.
