Time Torpedoes are launched from the Time Warp Silos of a War TARDIS. It takes a little over 30 seconds for them to reach their target. When they detonate, their target is frozen in a microsecond of space-time. Depending on the setting this can last for months to several centuries. While these weapons are capable of breaching even a TARDIS's defences, any Time Lord or TARDIS that arrives in the blast area after the torpedo detonates will find itself to be unaffected by the temporal stasis field.
