No torps on Amagi?

As I was going through wiki on IJN ships that I noticed that Amagi was designed to have 8 x 61cm torpedo tubes. If thats the case, why wasn't it put into the game to be the first battleship to launch torpedoes than having german battleships being the first. Just wondering what was the decision on not implementing in the game?

Because they were fixed tubes. Lots of ww1-design battleships had those - but you had to physically turn the entire ship to aim them, and they were a structural weak point in the ship. The decision was made not to have them in-game.

the same reason why we don't put Bismarck with one

 

other than that
Torpedo on Battleship through out history proven to be not very reliable, especially the fact you are putting a dangerous 'Long Lance' on the deck of a ship that intended to receive hit a lot

along with eight 61 cm (24 in) above-water torpedo tubes.

610 mm Torpedoes are Surface Launch (i think)

Thats because the Tirpitz was refitted to have torpedo tubes and probably after the sinking of the Bismarck. But haven't found when she was refitted and why she's a premium for being unique
