PAKET-E/NK is unparalleled. The system consists of a control system, a special sonar station, two modular launcher units with small size thermal torpedoes and anti-torpedoes.

This composition ensures simultaneous engagement of an attacking submarine and torpedoes. Dimensions of the system provide for simple adaptation to ships with different displacement. PAKET-E/NK is simple in combat use and during routine maintenance.

PAKET-E/NK is an effective anti-submarine defence system that combines attack and defence capabilities.

Depending on missions assigned to the surface ship, its launching units can house combat modules armed with different combinations of small-sized heat-seeking torpedoes and/or anti-torpedoes, both in nomenclature and in quantity.
