Never heard of a nuclear tipped version of it, any links with any info?

well there may not be a need for it.

since a MK48 ADCAP can be wire guided initially from information from the submarines sonar... and once in proximity to the target cut loose to use its passive/active homing system the chance are good for a solid contact type hit. and with a 19 foot body...well it isnt carrying just a little warhead to the target.

id say you put enough of these after a deep typhoon..and it could be bye bye time for the sub.

this argument reminds me of the sinking of the bismark. why try to completley obliterate the sub when you can hit the screw and put it out of commission? ok, that could be a difficult shot, but you won't have too many other options. it's not like something this big would sit around for you to take shots at it until it sinks. i also couldn't see the use of nuclear torpedos being justified unless we knew for sure it was about to launch at the US first.

Fine. Fire a few torpedos in unison under the belly of the Typhoon class sub. It's gonna crumble.
