Q regarding torpedo bombers and smoke

In a couple of games I've had torpedo's just materialize seemingly  out of nowhere.

Are torpedo bombers visible when dropping their fish?

 

Also, how does a DD in a smoke screen see me and hit me when I cant see him?

Cause u outside the smoke, and why u can't see is because DD  have special ability. Set smoke screen and turn off AA by pressing "p" to make u hard to detect.

 

Edit: u can see those suggestion when loading to battle

DDs dropping their fish whilst they are out of detection range- you cant see them, but they can see you.

Like they say.... DDs putting fish in the water outside your view range or from inside smoke.

 

If you play DDs long enough, for both US and JP, and if you look at the team roster carefully, the torp spread and salvo frequency, you can roughly tell which DD is stalking you and take necessary actions.

Lol it also says you can't fire from inside smoke without getting spotted , smoke is a bit broken right now

Torpedo bombers have a very visible torpedo drop animation.

 

Smokescreens break line of sight. However, a DD inside a smokescreen can still see outside of it if there are allies in the area who can see around the smokescreen.

You had to learn of 20km torpedo travel distance the hard way.

I like it.

Q: will Torpedo get unseen again after the LONE target get killed?

 

Harpoon I'd imagine so. I figure that the torpedo spotting is similar to ship spotting. Torps get spotted, 5-6 seconds of visibility depending on what's spotting, then as the torps leave detectability range they go invisible again.
