Haunted by a torpedo

So a group of torpedoes heading for my Mino ran out before they reached me but I guess 1 of them was really determined to get me because the icon for it haunted me for the rest of the battle.

I did a sort of panoramic screenshot to show it:

Note the little yellow icon floating almost directly between my aiming reticle & the scores.

Quick question... Are you sure not one of the 2 green DDs that are close to you,  had sent torps heading near you?

Positive...that battle lasted almost to the whole 20 minutes (they actually put up quite a comeback fight but we still ended up winning) & it never went away. I never had torps coming at me again so it may have been cancelled out later had more torps overridden it but it stayed like that through the whole battle.

I seen the torps that created the icon...there was a whole rack perfectly broadside to me that all disappeared about 2km from me but the icon for the 1 just lingered.

The point of the panoramic shots was to show that there was not visible torps in the water despite the icon. I was actually beached on the southern tip of that island just to my left when they showed up over 2 minutes before I snapped the screen shots...I had backed off the island & was lingering in the area for quite awhile because I had good shots on ships & even though I was detected occasionally nobody was aiming at me.

It's them new-fangled wake homing torpedoes.... foiled by deploying the Nixie gear revving up the turbine engines to a flank bell at 30+ kts, as you hope the torpedo turns the wrong way when it encounters your wake.
