View Full Version : min/max velo/height to drop torpedo?

09-17-2010, 01:24 PM
hi there,

I just had an apparently perfect torpedo run, dropping from like 10m at 450 km/h from ju88, was absolutely sure to hit, just to see - nothing, they did not run....
I know I should not drop from too high , but am sure I was not. So - does anybody know if there is maybe also a minimum height, or a maximal velocity to drop them?

Not sure re your questions but if youre too near it will go straight UNDER the ship...

thx, but no. Was far enough away, they just did not come up again.

If everything you say is accurate, then you are using a mod.

As it currently is, you can drop your torpedo at any altitude and speed.

That's not entirely true. There are limits, but they are very high.

450 km/h is way too fast. Plain and simple - it exploded when it hit the water.

Well, I just launched one while going 600. Works from 30m, but not from 1000m. So the altitude is more likely a problem, about 200-300m being the limit. Sorry for causing confusion.

What altitude did you launch from?

I was low enough to see this trail it causes on the water, I think it was like 10m.
And to Aviar: yes, thinking about it, it was on warbirds of prey, so I was using a mod. If thats the cause I apologize for posting it here...
