“The torpedo exhibition at the former railway warehouse in Žabica was organized to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the launch of the world's first torpedo device in Rijeka Bay in 1866. A new naval weapon consisting of a small exploding boat, which can be deemed the predecessor of the torpedo, was first designed by an Austrian captain, Giovanni Biagio Luppis. The English collaboration with him, managed to produce a new device. It was a self-propelled, auto-piloted and self-detonating one called ''minenschiff'' and later ''torpedo''. Tested in Rijeka Bay, this device started being produced in 1967.”
