Glitch / Bug Torpedoes Deals No Damage!

Torpedoes, both from planes and destroyers have a minimum arming distance (Perhaps 1+km? Unsure of the distance). Usually , it's about 1-1.5s after they are dropped before they are armed . Only after they are armed (the arrow/triangle thingy pops up with a colour) then it does it's damage. 

Edit : The sound popped up upon torpedo launch - I forgot if that's an indicator that the torpedo is armed . It's hard to identify if it's a bug because that colored torpedo really makes it difficult to see. Could you please send us the replay (upload it somewhere or just re-record without the mod)

And there are torpedoes that are already armed but still do no damage.

Couldn't see if they were armed (On mobile atm) . But it seems so, so that's interesting. Would definitely be happy if I was in the BB though.

If the triangles don't appear, they're not armed yet.

 

But what about the rare but-can-still-happen torpedo hit that does zero damage but still cause flooding?

Confirmed those were dropped by a US torpedo bomber specifically langley's, they will not be armed that close to a ship.

 

P.S. you can not see the triangles on torpedoes during replay.
