According to these sources only one torpedo, midships, and she sank from the flooding.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Only one hit ? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif


I thought a ship of this size has enough watertight compartments to further flooding.

Maybe the torp hit a very sensitive spot or they could'nt seal the compartments for some reason. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Hi!

U-81 shot 2 torps against HMS Malaya and two against HMS Ark Royal.

Only one struck Ark Royal in the boilers killing one man. The situation got under control quickly and the carrier got under tow, but 10 hours later a fire broke out which could not be set under control and the ship was abandoned. It was obvious that the design of the carrier had some disadvantages and the damage control was poor.
