This inventiou relates to a torpedo net having
a mesh structure.
(C1. 114—241) '
There are two types of tor
tened to wire 6 by means of a‚ ?xed connection
28, and the wire 24 being fastene‘d to section 4
pedo nets‘ in general use: one type being used to
by connectors 30. When a tor‘pedo hits the net,
the wires 6 and_ 8 will separate as shown in dotted
protect moving vessels, and the oth'er type being
used to protect stationary objects. The nets may 5 lines to take up the initial shock, and then the
