Probably because Game Balance > Historical Accuracy

Her guns are great, if she had another torpedo launcher, her guns would be worse.

that's what so called balance. WG have had enough adding torpedo boat in tier 3. And Vampire is one example of gunboat.

I have to admit even with only 3 torpedoes it still a very fun ship to play,

Be interesting if the commonwealth as a tech tree line could have the single fire torps and and individual reload timer eg like Italian auto loaders in world of tanks

If you mean your shells needing to travel over the moon before hitting a target only 8 - 10 km away, then yes they are great guns. :cap_look:

Kolbergs guns do that too, as well as the Russian cruisers.

Since when did WG care about Russian bias I mean game balance anyway either?

I mean balance between historical ships. WG always took it too far to develop and rearrange paper ships. that's why some real ships always powercreeped.

But here's the thing, with premium ships the tier should be selected to suit the ships historical configuration. It's not bound by a tech tree. Had it gotten the historical second torpedo mount it could have easily kept the current performance on everything else and been at tier 4 or even 5.

maybe Because Vampire has old design and doesn't fit with mid tiers?

3/4 of the IJN are old designs. The tier 8 Amagi is a 1920 design
