WG, could you fix the drop pattern for the 2 TB option for the Hakuryu

Due to the Hak drop pattern which has an induced spread on the drop and the arming distance which prevents close drops, this allows for ships to easily evade the best attack option for IJN CVs. Of all the drop patterns for T10 CVs, the Hak is already gimped due to only being able to drop 2 torps ( the 4 drop option is not even worth talking about), and it arming distance.  The RN and the USN CVs drop more torps and are allowed to drop closer. The RN spread has an induced converging drop, which leads to more hits. The USN drop in an induced straight line which again leads to more hits. The Hakuryu is already disadvantaged from not having reliable damage over time attack. Could WG please at least even the field a little bit and give the Hakuryu a drop that doesn't spread and allow a ship to sail in between the drop so easily. Please leave your well informed and much-appreciated comments below.

Midway may have more torps , but they are super weak and the aiming time to get a small spread is way longer too, resulting in dropping super close to ships and also taking lots off AA damage.

The haku torps when led well can both hit most of the time on cruisers and BBs. They also do a LOT more damage than midway torps. It will be interesting to see the proposed changes to the haku 4 torp loadout and how that affects this.
