Can you torp yourself when not in a CV?

I've been wondering and in 1 ship of mine, (Duca T6) I've had more than one close call in almost torping myself in the ship.  Is it actually possible for you to torp yourself in any ship? 

With the Duca, she has good forward angles, great ship speed, and slow torps.  I've been tempted to try and see if I could actually do it, but never had the guts. Does anyone know for sure?

(Also, if you can torp yourself, would you be a team killer pink status?)

My 1st tk happened that way - can't remember the details, but it was a low tier ijn dd and I think speed boost was active.

Very embarrassing and it took a few moments to realize what had happened.

Yes, it does make you go pink.

Yes, ive seen a dd try to tk one of our own team mates bb, launch torps, went around bb to try to torp on other side, but bb avoided them so dd ended up running into his own torps & tk'ed himself...

AFAIK slowest torps are umikaze 44 knots. You would need a ship that can go at least 39 knots without speed boost or signals (and then it would have to be running both speed boost and signals). I can't see it happening. All the ships that go that fast have even faster torps.

Still, I will continue to use caution when trying to double torp in the Duca, as  I suffer from lag issues from time to time.  Don't want lag to catch up and play odd s*&t on me.  

Thank you all for the feedback on this.  Glad to know it's not just me worried or actually having experienced this in one way or another.  

Safe torping out there.

Well, back in old day you can torps yourself when you slide yourself on edge of the map.

Now? I don't think so.

I watched a video once where a dd tried to torp a nearby BB while hugging the border at near full speed and get dragged by the border while his torps launched from behind him, armed and killed him:Smile_teethhappy: sure, it's rare but was hilarious to watch...can't find the link right now.

In order to torp yourself, first you need to be fast enough to overtake your torps so they will hit you when you are in front of them. I dont think there is any ship in the game fast enough to outrun their own torps.

sometimes when youre already dissapointed before starting of battle and after clicking battle button you get to see 3x3 VOR divisions in enemy team + your team isnt even close to cap where youll even think that if you cap you might get fire support + your team yamato division shooting HE at enemy team using range mod and spotter+ aside those divisions enemy team has two asashios and your team fletcher gets detonated by asashio shot + 3 afk top tier temmate.

 

what else would you do?

I would take that an opportunity to learn from them instead of being frustrated. What are the chances of getting such bad scenario? I would say very very low. Just farm other stats, like damage, kills, plane kills etc.

What about turning into your torps?  The times when it almost happens and scares the crap out of me is when I plan on double side torping with the Duca and my connection is a bit laggy. Torp on the extreme front most angle, while turning into them to get the other side out.

Also, torps have to take time to accelerate too, like ships? Or do they have instant max speed?

Instant max speed. just the delay to touch the water. And you cannot turn fast enough, even if you can, torps will not arm.

Unless someone can show me replay that shows a non-CV-ship torping itself, I don't believe anyone here who said they done it or seen it, sorry. It may have looked like that, but there is the simple fact that the slowest torpedo is still faster than the fastest ship. How could you ever catch up to your own torpedo? Also, keep in mind, torpedos need a certain distance to arm. Feel free to share a replay to convince me otherwise.

The story of running around a BB and catching your own torps on the other side, sorry, that must have been torps from another source, not your own.
