The 18-in Fiume Mark III Torpedo was a torpedo manufactured by Whitehead from 1904.[1]

Development

It seems likely that this torpedo was a productised version of No. 401, one of two "new" Whitehead torpedoes being tried out in 1903; the other, No. 398, had an R.G.F. tail and so would seem unlikely to be dubbed "Fiume" type. It is clearly stated that an order was being contemplated.[2]
