Torpedo reload question

Potentially stupid question however............

In a cruiser....say the Charles Martel. I fire my starboard side tubes.............it appears they wont reload until I have also fired my port side torpedoes.

Is that right, or am I missing something. If is correct does anyone know the reason for the mechanic to be like that in the game?

No, they should start reloading immediately after fired. Only the RN ships torps reload bit diff, since you can single fire them; they wont reload till youve fired the full # of torps.

Do you have a screenshot or a video clip of it happening?

Really? There's no way to force the reload like autoloading tanks in WoT?

As far as Im aware no. The only way to force reload torps in the RN ships would be to fire off all the remaining torps.

Actually you can force reload. Its the F key, I think.

The F key forces a reload. However, tubes auto reload once you fire them off, you dont need to fire the other side off to get a reload.

The little reload indicator over the torpedo icon will only appear if ever single tube is empty, and then it will show the time to get 1 launcher reloaded. A better indicator is the little orange torpedo bars. In settings there should be some options to keep them visible even when on your main guns, so you can see how long the individual tubes will load. Same for main guns.

Torps tube automatically starts reloading once you fired all your torps. Unless you're playing a British ship, it's impossible to be forced to empty your torps tube before reloading.

 

Short answer, no you don't need to fire torps on both side. My guess is torps tubes were knocked out and you have to wait (or instantly damage con) before they start reloading again .
