Torpedos in Tuxedos

"That's not a penguin. That's a space station. I mean, torpedo."

A torpedo designed to simulate a non-offensive sea animal, like a penguin, in order to get close to a submarine without arousing suspicion.

In addition to the penguin model that inspired this idea, you could launch a school of dolphin-torpedos. Also, a school of fish-shaped charges being dragged forward by a motor concealed in the swarm.

       Maybe they could quack?

       I don't think penguins quack. It would be funny to fix small microphones to dolphins, tuna, and penguins that produce the same sound signature of a missile of the same size.
