A regular torpedo – as we know – is a cigar shaped, self-propelled underwater missile, fired from a submarine and meant to explode on impact. Some torpedoes were attracted to the target by sound and some by magnetism. These particular torpedoes, on the other hand, are out-of-water, cigar shaped, non-explosive, sound emitting devices that amplify sine waves produced electromagnetically by a wind-driven propeller. They are located close by Patarei (Battery), a former sea fortification of Tallinn, built in the middle of the 19th century and only bombarded once during its short time as a military object of any importance.
