Presumably that torpedo was armed and running inside the tube -- not a Good Thing™.

I don't think they arm themselves until they travel a certain distance hence laughter and wtfs rather than screams and ducking.

doesn't a torpedo need collide with something to detonate?

it's not a timed depth charge...

It needs to come within a few meters of a ship's metal hull. Ouch. But it should also have a fuse that won't arm until it has traveled some distance from the vessel.

I assume torpedoes have a number of failsafes on them, for example I heard of one that can disarm the torpedo if it does a 180, to keep ships from torpedoing themselves (it happens). One Kursk theory was that a torpedo ran hot in it's rack, and the captain attempted a 180 to disarm it (but it blew up anyway).

That torpedo's just nervous.

It promptly saw its shadow and retreated back into its tube, meaning another month of war.

Funny, but fake I think.

It's the nitrous oxide man-giggles in the background that makes the video. "WHAT th'.... FUCK!"
