Does anyone have anymore information about the ASBZO system used during Operation Korall? If it's an autonomous guidance system, then how can it be "non electrically connected with the torpedo", this makes no sense, or is it just a an issue with the translation? Or is it an autonomous ignition system?
"VNIIA together with Gidropribor "managed to create an autonomous special combat Charger Office (ASBZO), suitable for use with all pryamoiduschimi torpedoes 533mm caliber. This immediately simplifies operation torpedo nuclear weapons in the navies and increased its reliability."

I translated and re-read the page listed in the first post. From what I can understand, ASBZO was a project to improve the independence of the of the support systems (fuzing, detonators etc..) for the physics package. Thus requiring less human intervention meaning the weapon had a greater operation readiness. In fact the article mentions storing the massive T-15 in the tubes protecting it against mishaps aboard the boat, fire for instance. ASBZO seems to cover not just the engineering but the processes and procedures surrounding the deployment and handling of the weapon.
I also found some interesting info about the T-15, and how it was designed for use against US Naval bases or coastal cities, destroying them with a massive radioactive tsunami. In fact this page talks about using a torpedo to deliver a Tzar Bomb size warhead.
