Hi guys, this just came into my mind. Do you think it would be a good upgrade for the game if the torpedoes can be destroyed by shooting AP shells to it and score a direct hit?

Someone's been watching too much Haifuru me thinks....

 

Historically, there has only ever been 1 unconfirmed report of a ship's gunnery detonating an incoming torpedo.

 

At the depth that torpedo's run (~10 feet), the angle of deflection required would mean that almost all main guns, and most secondary guns would simply ricochet off the surface of the water.

That's the point. We don't want it to be to easy so the BB can have four savoes and kill off all the torps. 

The use of AP shell in detonating the torpedoes should will be the same as the under water citadel hits.  

Also, no one has any expectations on secondaries. Please raise your hand if you got a citadel hit using the secondaries.

OP let say you can destroy torpedo with main gun but first look at this

 

it take 30 second to reload battleship guns. 25 at high tier if main battery reload module is equipped

it takes minekaze has 45 second reload while tier 8 and above has 180 to 200+ second for torpedo to reload.

also note that it takes couple of second for torpedo to reach their target base on distance, while it only takes only few second for shell to reach their target.

if you are the destroyer player  is that even a fair trade?

 

what's even funny is, if main guns has hard time shooting large destroyer at certain distance. how it can even shoot a torpedo that is way too small? :teethhappy:

 

OP, you know its easier to learn anti torpedo maneuvers instead of suggesting impossible or pointless mechanics in the game.

You forgot to add "How Sluggish the Turret transverse speed is"

It's just another option, so if someone shoot you with torps at 0.9 km, you have a slim chance to survive (too slim you can't even see it ).

I think it is not possible to shoot down torpedoes by a small caliber gun.

 

but for battle ship's main gun,

the shock wave when the ammo hit water should can influence torpedoes's direction, 

you dont need to actually shoot on the torpedo
