The slow running torpedo (SLC - Siluro a Lenta Corsa, meaning long-range torpedo), also known as the "pig", was an underwater assault vessel of the Italian Royal Navy with a shape similar to a torpedo, adapted to carry astride, low speed, two operators equipped with autonomous underwater breathing apparatus and an explosive charge to be applied covertly to the hull of the opposing ship at mooring.

It was used by the MAS Flotillas of the Italian Royal Navy during the Second World War for sabotage actions against enemy ships, often anchored in militarily defended ports.
