It's a G7a(TI) with the type 1210 exercise head (it was an older model - ie pre WW2 - with a single blowing-mechanism, later replaced by the dual-mechanism type 1215 head).

Just for the record: Besides the G7a(TIü) variants, which were specifically designed for training purposes alone, there were no training torpedoes as such. All torpedoes could be used for training by replacing the warhead with an exercise head.
