I'm just curious as to whether the game developers have considered putting torpedo tubes on battleships as per the original Wyoming and Sth Carolina?

That is if you want to have No AA at all in a game with CVs :)

 

Germans, on the other hand may have Torps in some of the ships (Other than the destroyers, of course).

Japanese videogame magazine Famitsu has published on their website an interview with Ivan Moroz, who is the global director of the WoWS development team at Wargaming Saint Petersburg.

 

  • The developers plan on splitting cruiser classes into CL and CA, in addition to separate branches for battleships equipped with torpedoes. Submarines aren't completely ruled out of the game, though they are still in preliminary brainstorming stages.

It's probably going to be some aspect of the national peculiarities. IJN for range, USN for tanking, ??? for torps, WG has been pushing each nation to have different playstyles so I'd assume that it might be related to that.

 

Note that this is all guesswork and speculation on my behalf.

How many people here know that BB torps were submerged launchers at their bow?

Yeah, good luck aiming that.

 

There are some exceptions though, Tirpitz did mount deck torpedo tubes (2x Triple 533mm).
