Given planes travel very fast, they wouldn't need it as much as ships.

 

Hope it's not the case though.

No, the distance is hard coded, like ship spotting distance from the air. It is not effected by any other buffs its a separate thing.

Ummm...I've never not seen an air dropped torpedo from the moment it was dropped, so not sure what you are getting at. Vigilance wouldn't help anyway.

Aircraft torpedoes have a spotting range akin to Shimakaze....the Martians spot them right when they are launched.

I believe the question was more along the lines of: Does Vigilance improve my aircraft's ability to detect torpedoes?

I read that as well and the skill only increases the ship's acquisition range.

Vigilance is *SUPPOSED* to stack with hydro acoustic search, and the increased detection module for both ships and torpedoes. It has no effect on spotting distances for ships or torps from any kind of air craft.

 

According to testing I have seen recently it does not work as intended, Vigil does not seem to be stacking for torps with hydro or the spotting module. I have not tried to confirm this myself but there have been a few threads on EU and clan forums stating that it is not working as intended currently. I don't know the level of testing that went in to determining that though so take it with a grain of salt. 

 

It would be great if anyone had any recent (as in the last two patches) testing videos they could share to confirm or refute this.
