In history, Kongo mounted 8*533mm forward mount underwater torpedoes when constructed. It was removed in 1930s when underwater protection was added.

Would be cool if implemented in the game, as mounted on its hull A

Do you know how hard it is to aim fixed torpedo tubes?

And beside, WG haven't considered implementing fixed torpedo tubes yet, especially on BB.

Tirpitz is an exception, because her torpedoes are deck-mounted and rotate-able just like Cruiser and Destroyer torpedoes.

Fixed torpedo launcher for Hull (A) ehh?

Question: How long you will keep using your stock hull with fixed torpedo launcher before you get your next hull upgrade?

Right, he'll get torp'd often by carrier without hull's AA upgrades.

 

That AA is insignificant. The Kongo in its stock hull has poor armor and gun arc for 3rd turret, even Cleveland AP can pen her Citadel.

Beside, how often does BB get into close range to use the torp? wouldn't it be much better to focus on the firepower and armor that BB supposed to make use of?

 

It's impractical in other word, I'd not use the stock hull just for the lolz torps.

They and many others had them so should have them in game. Would much prefer some realistic performance from ships than a lot of the gamy nerfs and excesses which exist now.
