Question about Torpedos

This is my first post and I have been playing for only 6 months.

I have experienced being attacked by torpedos that appear to be coming from under an island I was hiding behind. 

They seem to be launched from the other side of the island and I have checked and there was a ship there.

Is this possible ? Does anyone have an explanation for this ?  Am I totally wrong ?

Is there some other explanation for  what I am seeing?

torps can't go through or around islands. There are two possible things causing this. The first is that the torpedoes were dropped by an aircraft carrier. The second, and more likely, is that the torpedoes were fired from stealth. This is possible on some destroyers because their torpedo range is longer than their detection range.

Yeah especially the Japanese Destroyers, main line of those get 10km torpedoes and have 7km or less Detection Range.

Also another I’ve seen a time or 2 are “ghost” torps. I play on an older pc and sometimes it has issues. I’ve seen a few torps every now and then just keep going after impact. They can’t hit anything because they aren’t there but you still see the trail and the little marker.

I've seen some sketchy launches by planes that seem over the island and the fish come out from the land. Could just be server side rendering anomalies.

I didn't give you a +1 because you don't have a cat in our avatar.

Torps are always an unpleasant surprise innit?

Welcome and fair seas.

Thank you for the many responses. The answers have certainly cleared things up nicely and reassured me that I am not hallucinating.

Just as an after thought , I tried to recreate this . I could not. 

The Torps exploded when  they reached the Island.

All the best, Captain Putz

It's the new island-based bot torpedo launchers they put in last patch.  Stay away from islands!

I thought some islands had secret torpedo doors ?
