Iran's Hoot / Russia's Shkval

The Hoot torpedo is an underwater missile that uses supercavitation to attain high velocities far in excess of a conventional torpedo. The Hoot is evidently derived from the Russian Shkval missile (though Iran officially denies this). Persian-language documentation of Shkval testing in Iran is given below, along with related materials on Hoot missile development and production.
