Just like the title says can the Deepwater Torpedo's be disabled and regular torpedos be used in their place??

Nothing is mentioned about that.

I'm pretty sure that the Deep Water torpedoes currently have no benefits, and is a straight nerf to normal torpedoes. But then again, that's the info i'm using off of the data leaks and what i've seen so far in game.

Just the stats alone are a little sad from the wiki.

Not only does the Hsiangyang suffer a 3 km nerf, but can only hit cruisers and battleships with only a 2 knt upgrade.

Yeah, I'd much rather have torps that I know can hit all types of ships, especially DDs camping in smoke and contesting a cap. If I see that, I want to be able to put a large spread of torps into that smoke cloud and flush them out or kill them/badly damage them.

It is rather odd this is the new thing for the new class that really isn't effective on the class of vessels that need to be attacked with them. I thing I hve had to much to drink even I don't understand what I wrote. おやすみ Oyasumi

This is why tier 8+ gets radar so you can radar the smoke and shoot them to death instead.

Yeah don't understand why they even want these as a thing. Maybe if you could switch between the two they may be ok but honestly seem irrelevant. I suppose if you were working with another friendly DD to torp something big they would have a use but they seem pretty stupid. It is a good thing they are on a line of ships I don't care about.

.....

They should have a big increase in damage, and huge reduction in detection. 

 

(Generally, I think they're not a good idea).

So far no signs of the damage increase or the detection reduction. They are all the same as it's "Shallow" torpedo brothers.

Ofcourse, this is based on the latest information I've seen (October 1st by Notser) He's going over the T10 destroyers, and the big thing i'm looking at is when he's comparing the stats at 7:30. The Detection range is even worst than the gearing. =/ I hope he's wrong, I have been training my Ashnan DD for a while. Kinda excited to actually use the captain. lol
