I do not understand how a plane can launch torps so close to a cliff.  They armed as they hit me.  At first I thought that the damn island was launching torps.

Helicopters placed them next to you. That was in the last patch. Joking of course. I have seen that on the forums before and I don't know how they could do that.

If you watch the animations of the aircraft they really dont drop like they did in real life.  It is possible that if you were a tad closer to the island they would have dropped on land.  However since they drop pretty much vertically (90 degrees) for WoWS I can see this happening.

So I guess suffice to say, don't look for realism in aircraft mechanics.

Tiny bit closer and you would've been safe. Just unlucky. Also what Siegewolf said.

Torps have a 1km range before they arm.

Yes. They are essentially dive bombers that launch a torpedo.

Always one of my biggest complaints about CVs...until Strafing, observation plane fighters, and...... ....the infamous shore drop...I have seen ships torped in the channel on Big Brother...lol.   The shore drop was the beginning of my strong dislike for having CVs being in the game, beside the fact a CV Admiral would never purposely put his fleet CV within 200 miles of an enemy surface ship...hence my stand that CVs should be out of the game, though I played them up to T7 and retired mine for the duration.
