Paket-NK is a newly introduced system in the Russian Navy and this was the first live test of the system from an active vessel. According to its manufacturer, JSC "Tactical Missiles Corporation", it is a dual mode torpedo intended to destroy both submarines and torpedoes in the near field of the ship.

The complex consists of a control system, specialized sonar targeting, and the launchers themselves. It can be stand-alone or as part of the ship's Combat Management System. When integrated to the CMS, Paket-NK provide automatic ASW and anti-torpedo protection according to the ship's sonar systems and stations, as well as detection, classification and definition of the parameters of motion attacking the ship torpedoes.

A Paket-NK torpedo has a diameter of 324mm and length of about 3200mm. Its weight is approximately 385 Kg with 70 Kg of TNT equivalent for the warhead. Its speed ranges from 30 to 50 knots with a range of about 10 nautical miles.

Paket-NK may eventually replace the "old school" RBU family of anti-submarine and anti-torpedo rocket launcher in service since the 1960ies.
