History:

The Stingray Mk.10 torpedo is the result of over 30 years of continuous development. It was the standard air launched torpedo of the US Navy and the rest of the Naval air wings of the Unified Forces, and was used later by the UEDF on its anti-submarine VTOL aircraft.

The Stingray could take out any Terran submarine save for the Prometheus and Daedalus carriers. During the Macross Island assault and later in the Malcontent Uprisings several pods were destroyed in this manner. The Stingray is still in service, but anti-submarine warfare is rapidly becoming an extinct art, as no known possible enemy deploys submarines.
