Overall walk-around of the torpedo's propellers.

Picture 11 of 11.

The torpedo has two propellers, a forward and an after propeller, which spin in opposite directions to cancel out any gyroscopic effect that the propellers' rotation would otherwise have on the torpedo.

Barely visible inside the propeller hub, at the terminator between the dark and light areas, appear to be some exhaust escape holes (presumably in the after propeller sleeve).
