From Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/WorldOfWarships/comments/4k2l8q/150th_anniversary_of_the_invention_of_the_torpedo/

 

150 years ago, in 1866, English engineer Robert Whitehead, in collaboration with the Croatian-Italian navy officer Ivan Vukić/Giovanni Luppis created the first modern torpedo.

The design was based on Vukić's previous invention, the so called 'Salvacosta', but improved on a number of characteristics. Shortly thereafter, the first torpedo factory in the world was built in Rijeka, Croatia, which still stands to this very day.

 

Today marks the start of the large industrial heritage conference marking the torpedo's 150th birthday; a conference regarding the torpedo and its impact in the modern world (no pun intended). The link to the conference page's useful links is provided, with more details regarding torpedo history can be found in the link: http://www.torpedo150rijeka.org/useful_links

 

 We should have a sale of the Kitakami to commemorate.
