I notice on different post about the Graf Zeppelin that WG is "After analyzing your answers to the survey, we added standard torpedoes for t-bombers. In port you can choose standard or deep-waters torpedoes."

I wondering if WG has every thought about doing this for all CVs, and other Torpedo using ships?

What do you think?

What possible advantage would you get from deep water torpedoes on torpedo bombers?  The biggest advantage they give is the short warning time - but when you can see the planes drop that advantage disappears.

That leaves only the disadvantage that you'll never be able to use them against destroyers - which, I know are not the best use of torpedo bombers, but you can still manually drop on smoke, and they are more reliable than bombs when you have a destroyer threatening your CV.

What am I missing here?

Failure of reading comprehension.  Nothing to see here.  Move along.

Well what I meant is I was wondering if the whole idea of DWT,  "In port you can choose standard or deep-waters torpedoes." Let all ships that use Torpedoes choose in port DWT or standard torpedoes? Even the Pan Asian DDs.

Yeah, the part I missed was that they were adding the standard torpedoes.  Not the DWT.

Ooops.

Giving Pan-Asian DDs the option to choose torpedo types would be a significant buff.  Even if the DD doesn't take the option, enemy DDs will have to take into account that the Pan-Asian MAY have them.  No more confidently charging smoke knowing there's no concern about incoming torpedoes.

Well I just wondering how it would be across the board - choose type for Cruisers, BBs, etc. not just the PADDs.

Nobody will use the DWT on PADD if given the choice.

This, because they're a dumb gimmick.
